About This Book

George J. Younghusband (1859-1944) came from a British family with a long tradition of serving in the Indian army. This is a reissue of his 1888 account and journal of his 1887 travels in Siam and the Shan States on behalf of British military intelligence (the British had occupied Upper Burma in 1886, but the mountainous borderlands were both little known and a focus for international power playing). Prof. D.K. Wyatt's useful critical introduction sets the author's ideas and the whole enterprise into context. With facsimiles of the original sketch maps and a new glossary.
