The Irrawaddy: Myanmar’s Premier Newsmagazine

The Irrawaddy: Myanmar’s Premier Newsmagazine


In the September 2014 print edition of The Irrawaddy, our cover story offers portraits of some of Myanmar’s most promising artists, rappers, dancers and other creative types, taken by acclaimed American photographer Diana Markosian.

In our Opinion section, we consider whether US President Obama’s foreign-policy “success story” in Myanmar really stands up to scrutiny, and ask if it could end in disappointment.

In Business, we get the ball rolling on a debate about how to kick-start the national economy, speak to a Mandalay-based mattress magnate, and have our monthly summary of the top news stories from various sectors of Myanmar’s economy.

Our Features section includes a photo essay about kickboxing in one of Thailand’s toughest prisons, an examination of the role of military ties in Myanmar’s business world, a rebuttal to the argument that “Asian values” and genuine democracy are somehow mutually exclusive, and a story about finding George Orwell in Bangkok.

In Lifestyle, we explore Myanmar’s far south, sample some northern Thai cuisine in Yangon, and look forward to an annual film festival that promises to have some interesting offerings.

If you want to know what makes Myanmar tick, read The Irrawaddy, the monthly newsmagazine that gives you in-depth reporting and a fresh take on the country’s many attractions.
