' In fact,' he says, Socialist Nationalism is already the correct tetm to use to descr.be the political leadership in Burma.'
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a

given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
