Burma Chronicles is a book which manages to do this in a very intimate, personal, mellow sort of way. Delisle isn't an activist, he isn't oppressed in any way, but every day in Myanmar he is affected by the ruling dictatorship of the country he is in. When he goes for a walk he notices that a nearby neighbor is actually a well-known politician, under house arrest for many years.

An impressive and moving work of comics journalism from the author of Pyongyang and Shenzen.
