Publisher's Summary

Thailand, Laos, and Burma have been known as the "Golden Triangle" because of their historically prominent role in the drug trade. For centuries, these countries have produced the opium that has attracted traders from Europe and elsewhere. Economics, religion, and politics combine to make this area not only important but also, to the western mind, exotic. The World's Political Hot Spots series explains the basis of conflicts in some of the world's most politically sensitive areas. Many of these regions are in today's headlines, and tensions recently have become violent in virtually all of them. Each presentation covers up to 10 centuries of background, revealing how and why today's problems occur.

engaging

What made the experience of listening to The Golden Triangle the most enjoyable?

There are very few books or audiobooks out there on the history or issues in Southeast Asia. I appreciated the content of this book. If you have any interest in the history of this region I think the content and performance are very good.

The Golden Triangle | [Bertil Lintner]

This is very informative, though dated. It gives the history of Myanmar (Burma) and the Golden Triangle region.
