This text provides a thorough examination of the history of Myanmar from Neolithic times to the present. Myanmar has experienced a seemingly endless series of conquerors, dating from prehistoric times through the reign of Kublai Khan's Mongol forces beginning in the late 1200s, all the way through the modern era, when it was subject to both British colonial control and invasion by the Japanese during World War II. The History of Myanmar provides a detailed, historical overview of the key people, places, and events in this often-overlooked country's past and present. It examines the history of Myanmar, from Neolithic times to all of its ruling dynasties to the modern era in a chronological manner, providing a contextual framework for the further exploration of its complex history. This text pays special attention to the unique circumstances that led to the formation of the modern nation of Myanmar. Provides a chronology of the key events in Myanmar's history Maps of early Kobang Burma and of Indochina (showing the proposed Burma-Siam-China railway) helps provide perspective A bibliography of significant materials allows continued study of Myanmar Includes more than 40 engaging biographical sketches of the key figures in the history of Myanmar Helpful indexes offer easy reference to key terms
