Description

First published in 1909, at the midpoint of British occupation, this volume sought to provide the first popular history of Burma (now Myanmar) for British businessmen and visitors otherwise put off by difficulties of translation and understanding. Having lived in Burma for forty years, arriving between the second and third Anglo-Burmese wars, J. Stuart sought to rectify the reduction of Burmese history to barbarism, comparing the struggle for supremacy between historical Burmese factions to the combined history of France, England and Scotland up to James I. To that end, this volume contains a detailed, chronological history from A.D. 639 until 1900 along with 15 illustrations.
