The Shore Beyond Good and Evil

"Takano is a very stubborn person - which translates into a very entertaining book. His latest project is no less than infiltrating a village in Burma - the Opium Kingdom - and planting poppy for a season with the villagers. Taking us along, Takano is an experienced storyteller who not only describes his experiences, but also shares his confidences. This is a Survivor-esque take on the harsh world of drug producers, military juntas and cash-strapped farmers. Equal parts journalist, sociologist and diplomat. Takano's documentary of the fine line between good and evil is riveting."
