Ne Win: A Political Biography, by Robert Taylor--

Good lord, nearly $100 for this piece of junk.

Do not touch with a long pole except to hoist author and subject with their own petard.

I have an anecdote from c. 2001 at SAIS in DC, when Burmese dissidents stole Robert Taylor's coat and wallet--

It was November and very cold.

I happened to be sitting in the 2nd row behind RT and Steinberg, another junta apologist, and he was shivering as he asked S where he could buy a new coat. He told S his credit cards were also in his wallet and all were taken from the coat rack.

Surely this testifies how universally detested this man is.
