About This Book

In a sophisticated and much-needed account, the author argues that many aspects of contemporary Burmese society are the creations of the 19th century when Burma fought the British and tried to modernise the country. This important book covers the 19th & early 20th century history of Burma, and is useful resource material for understanding contemporary politics. Thant Myint-U currently is with the UN in New York. He previously served on various UN peace keeping operations in Cambodia and Yugoslavia.
