A delicate relationship : the United States and Burma/Myanmar since 1945


In 2012, Barack Obama became the first US president ever to visit Myanmar, formerly known as Burma. This official state visit marked a new period in the long and sinuous diplomatic relationship between the United States and Burma/Myanmar, which Kenton Clymer examines in A Delicate Relationship. From the challenges of decolonization and heightened nationalist activities that emerged in the wake of World War II, to the Cold War concern with domino states, to the rise of human rights policy in the 1980s and beyond, Clymer demonstrates how Burma/Myanmar has fit into the broad patterns of US foreign policy and yet has never been fully integrated into diplomatic efforts in the region of Southeast Asia
