When the author assumed a two-year lecturing position in English language at a college in Mandalay in 1986, little did he realize that he was to witness the lead-up to one the most brutal political crackdowns in recent southeast Asian history. His highly personal account of life in Burma, the growth of unrest, the onset of massive pro-democracy rallies, and their ultimate failure after violent military suppression in 1988 is presented in heart-wrenching clarity.

An appendix provides a translation of Mandalay students records of the Sagiang Massacre of August, 1988.
