In this week’s New Statesman: Burma’s silent agitator

Noam Chomsky on Latin America | Osborne’s deadly cuts | David Remnick interview.

By George Eaton

New cover

Aung San Suu Kyi may be unable to take part in Burma’s elections this year but in this week’s cover story, Peter Popham argues that she remains the most potent force resisting the rule of the generals. Meanwhile, Noam Chomsky looks at what the west can learn from Latin America’s enduring struggle against neoliberalism and US domination.

Elsewhere, our top columnists give their verdict on George Osborne’s first Budget. David Blanchflower warns that Osborne’s dramatic spending cuts could tip Britain back into recession and Mehdi Hasan says that the Chancellor’s decision to hit the poor with tax rises proves that the Nasty Party never went away.

In the Critics, Rachel Cooke explains where the latest John Lennon biopic went wrong and Ryan Gilbey reviews new films by Woody Allen and Francis Ford Coppola.
