Abstract

The run-up to Myanmar's 60th birthday on 04 January 2008 was not a joyous occasion. Neither was the aftermath. First there was the military regime's crackdown on the 'saffron revolution' in September last year. Then last month Cyclone Nargis struck, leaving millions suffering without shelter and food. What do the next sixty years hold for Myanmar? Tobias Rettig, political science professor at the Singapore Management University, sees a largely bleak future tinged with a faint glimmer of hope.
