The memory of a brief visit to Burma had haunted Rory MacLean for years. A decade after the violent suppression of an unarmed national uprising, which cost thousands of lives and all hopes for democracy, he seized the chance to return. Travelling from Rangoon to Mandalay and Pagan, into the heart of the Golden Triangle, he hears the stories of ordinary people struggling to survive under one of the most brutal and repressive regimes in the world. Under the Dragon is a portrayal of contemporary Burma, a country that is shot through with desperation and fear, but also blessed'”even in the darkest places'”with beauty and courage.
