"An epic, multigenerational story of courage and sacrifice set in a tropical dictatorship on the verge of massive transformation, The Rebel of Rangoon captures a gripping moment of possibility in Burma. Journalist Delphine Schrank spent four years underground tracking Burmese dissidents whose semi-clandestine existence and fight for democracy remained largely hidden behind their globally celebrated figurehead, Aung San Suu Kyi. With intimate, vivid prose, Schrank follows the inner life of a daredevil young dissident, his friends and rivals, across rural hamlets and flickering internet connections, into prison cells and safe houses, and deep into their own hearts, as they escape spies and outwit interrogators, fall in love or slip into insanity. Throughthat dissident's perspective, Schrank unfurls a harrowing account of a country's efforts to emerge from military dictatorship, how a movement of dissidents came into being, how it almost died, and how it pushed its government to crack a

Set in the trenches of a nonviolent pro-democracy opposition in a dark and hermetically sealed country on the verge of massive transformation, "The Rebel of Rangoon" tracks a revolution in real time. Journalist Delphine Schrank spent four years undercover among dissidents in the Burmese underground--eavesdropping in teashops, across flickering online connections, and in mud-moated rural hamlets. Through their stories of courage and sacrifice, she explores the dilemmas and passions of Burma's ragged and diffuse inter-generational revolutionary movement, whose existence and ultimate triumph against one of the world's most repressive governments has remained largely submerged behind that of their globally celebrated figurehead, Aung San Suu Kyi.
"The Rebel of Rangoon" is the story of a Sisyphean struggle against oppression, and of the ambiguities arising in the glory of its unexpected resolution. A young man in contemporary Burma-- Nway--becomes a dissident and a leader in the latest generation of a movement shaped by decades of opposition to authoritarian rule. Through his tale, and the tale of his growing friendship with a great rival-- Nigel--unfurls the larger story of a country's emergence from military dictatorship, how a movement of dissidents came into being, how it almost died, and how it pushed its government to crack apart and begin an irreversible process of political reform. Schrank offers a powerful portrait of the men and women who braved it all to carry their people's hope, never relenting in their fight for freedom.
