Ten years ago, the people of Burma rose up against their military government. The unarmed demonstrators were cut down, leaving more than five thousand dead. In ' Under the dragon', Rory MacLean, author of the acclaimed 'Stalin’s Nose' and 'The Oatmeal Ark', travels from a decaying Rangoon to the heart of the golden triangle, meeting the victims and perpetrators of the uprising. He rides with a hill-tribe warlord, shares tea with a government censor and is trapped into a karaoke evening with Chinese businessmen. He learns about the economics of the heroin trade and the tragedy of child prostitution. He meets the most courageous and contentious woman of our age, Aung San Suu Kyi, imprisoned leader of the democratic opposition party. And he unravels a paradox of selfless generosity and sinister greed in a land stitched together by love and fear.
