The Shore Beyond Good and Evil

"A remarkable literary scoop to be released this month in Southeast Asia and worldwide in July. "The Shore Beyond Good and Evil" is a brave -- some may say foolhardy -- autobiographical report from inside the opium kingdom of Burma (Myanmar) by writer Hideyuki Takano. It follows the seven months he spent in a traditional Wa mountain village, participating in the complete cycle of opium production and giving insights into a way of life molded by opium and ethnic conflict."
