Security Sector Reform in Burma/Myanmar


Further Introductory Reading

Andrew Selth. Burma's Armed Forces: Power Without Glory. Norwalk: EastBridge, 2002. [Google Books]
About: "The key to coming to grips with modern Burma is understanding the country's armed forces. Although it has dominated all aspects of Burmese life since the 1962 coup, there has been no comprehensive or detailed study of the Tatmadaw as a military institution. Drawing on five years of research in Burma and beyond, including interviews with military specialists and commentators, the author has written the first book on the inner workings of the Tatmadaw. Here is a scholarly and objective account of Burma's strategic posture, its defense policies and threat perceptions; its military doctrine, defense expenditures, arms acquisitions, and combat capabilities." [Forward by D. Steinberg]
