The world my country : The story of Daw Nyein Tha of Burma

The story of remarkable Burmese woman.

'Asian women are making their mark on history these days - Mrs Gandhi, Mrs Banderanaike, Mao Tse-tung's widow. But none of their stories is more exciting that this one of a Burmese woman whose quality of life - without governmental aid - affected statesmen, soldiers, diplomats and thousands of other people around the world. As a friend of Daw Nyein Tha for thirty years and as a British diplomat in Rangoon and other capitals, I saw first hand the remarkable results of her work. To read her story is to get fresh inspiration about what an individual can do.' A.R.K. Mackenzie, CBE, former British ambassador
