Rohingya Muslims: Story to be Told

by | Dec 20, 2017 | Articles and Reports, News

British publisher IB Tauris is to publish a new book on the persecution of the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. Written by journalist Poppy McPherson The Shadows of Myanmar: Aung San Suu Kyi and the Persecution of the Rohingya will explore the
long-term causes of this “catastrophe”. It will be published in 2018.

McPherson has been covering the region for several important publications including the Guardian and TIME. Commissioning editor Tomasz Hoskins said: “This is an incredibly important story which the world needs to hear. Reports coming out of the region are becoming more and more worrying.

“Poppy Mcpherson’s work over the last few years, reporting from the ground in Myanmar and Bangladesh, has been brilliant, and she is absolutely the right person to write this book on the long-term causes of this catastrophe, including on the role of [Myanmar’s leader] Suu Kyi herself.”

The publisher holds world rights.
