Item description for In Search of Sunlight: Burmese Migrant Workers (Asian Portraits.) by Pim Koetsawang...

Since the repressive military regime (SLORC - now SPDC) seized power in Burma in 1962, the Burmese people have suffered untold repression and increasingly intolerable living conditions. For many, the flight to Thailand has become a saviour, not just to earn money on which to live, but merely to survive. On the Thai side of the border, some have faced almost equally repressive working and living conditions and an uncaring Thai government that has vacillated in its official attitude towards migrant workers. the journey to the new country too, is fraught with dangers, dishonesty and double-dealings, much of it from Thai and Burmese government officials and private entrepreneurs alike. The author of this text has lived amongst and visited such people, both along the Thai/Burma border and in migrant communities close to Bangkok. She has documented their stories and their plight, and presents a harrowing picture of a powerless group caught between two evils, merely seeking to eke out a living under adverse conditions. The book exposes the maltreatment such people receive and explains their plight and motivations for making the move.
