'[I]mpressive. [...] the book is valuable not only to Myanmar specialists, but also to political scientists who want to know how Myanmar's political transition fits in with broader insights and debates.' -- Jurgen Haacke, Contemporary Southeast Asia
'A timely and first-rate analysis of the complex changes taking place in Myanmar, Caretaking Democratization is a must-read for anyone trying to understanding the country's labyrinthine politics.' -- Thant Myint-U, Chairman of the Yangon Heritage Trust and author of The River of Lost Footsteps: A Personal History of Burma
'Renaud Egreteau combines in this important new work an expert knowledge of Myanma society and politics with a close understanding of the theoretical literature on military regimes and their transitions. This nuanced volume should be required reading.' -- David I. Steinberg, Distinguished Professor of Asian Studies Emeritus, Georgetown University
'Since the advent of Thein Sein's reformist government in 2011, Renaud Egreteau has established himself as an international authority on the political role of Myanmar's armed forces. This comprehensive and carefully researched book is not only essential reading for that period but also for the country's future development under Aung San Suu Kyi.' -- Andrew Selth, Associate Professor at Griffith University and Australian National University
'This book will be of great interest to those seeking to understand Myanmar's complex political dynamics. Egreteau draws on a wide range of scholarly literature and his own extensive empirical research to analyze the balance of power between the military and other key political actors in the post-2010 period.' -- Christina Fink, Professor of Practice of International Affairs at George Washington University and author of Living Silence in Burma: Surviving under Military Rule
