About This Book

In 2012, Barack Obama became the first US president to visit Myanmar. This marked a new period in the two countries' sinuous diplomatic relationship, which Kenton Clymer examines in A Delicate Relationship. From the challenges of decolonization and heightened nationalism after World War II, to the Cold War concern with domino states, to the rise of human rights policy in the 1980s, 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 Southeast Asia.
