A brief look at the past of contemporary Myanmar | Southeast Asia Studies

Myanmar has been living under army command for almost half a cent. She was never recognised by the governing Burmese regime for the results of the 1990 election, and Aung San Suu Kyi, the Burmese pro-democracy leadership, was withheld. Burma is at a watershed as an economical sat and politically dependant of the People's Republic of China.

Is it going to become another North Korea, will it give in to China's hug of politics or will the tribe win? The first general story of Burma in over five centuries, Michael Charney's book retraces the ups and downs of Burmese Burma's past from settlements to the destruction of Cyclone Nargis in 2008.

On the basis of core issues such as the separation between the lowlands and highlands and the monasterial resistance to state controls, the writer declares the powers that have made the land what it is today. He is a été nommé Projektprofesseur de l'Institut d'études avancées sur l'Asie, Université de Tokyo et lecteur en Asie du Sud-Est et en histoire impériale à l'École d'études orientales et africaines de l'Université de Londres.
