A propos de cet article

First Edition (first printing). The first book by this prize-winning journalist, the story of his three year journey into Burma -- and personal audience with General Khun Sa, the man thought to control a third of world's heroin supply. Near Fine/Fine -- light crimping at the head of the spine. Inscribed by Cox on the half title page, as follows: "Larry Owens/The Golden Triangle was nothing. Traveling to Ponca City -- now there's a scary thought. How much would a good mule cost me? Happy trails, Christopher R. Cox.". N° de réf. du libraire 72354

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

A Boston Herald reporter's journey into Burma/Myanmar to interview the mysterious drug lord, Khun Sa.

Review:

Cox, a reporter for the Boston Herald, traveled into the Shan State, the lawless region of northern Myanmar (or Burma) that produces much of the world's opium, to interview Khun Sa, the drug warlord who built himself a jungle empire on drug profits and who styled himself a Shan freedom-fighter. Khun Sa, who has since "retired" and lives in Yangon (formerly Rangoon), is a complex character. This account of bearding the devil in his lair combines thorough research, high adventure, and prose pungent with the odor of poppies blooming on remote mountainsides.
