Product Description


'This important new book could scarcely be better timed. Appearing just as Burma itself is emerging from decades of effective isolation from much of the world, Ian Brown's account of Burma's economic travails is both a significant historical work, and a highly valuable contribution to understanding the country's current (and future) problems and possibilities. A book of immense scholarship worn lightly, Burma's Economy in the Twentieth Century will prove a seminal contribution to a country that may yet escape the shackles of its past.' Sean Turnell, Macquarie University

'Burma's Economy in the Twentieth Century is a comprehensive analysis of that increasingly important country. It comes at an opportune time when foreign companies are considering investing there. By providing an historical overview and background that is a major contribution to the burgeoning literature on Burma, Professor Brown has informed those in policy positions, potential investors in the private sector, and the academic community. The volume will also be a welcome text for courses on Burma and is highly recommended.' David Steinberg, Distinguished Professor of Asian Studies, Georgetown University

'Professor Brown's very readable, but erudite, volume Burma's Economy in the Twentieth Century achieves more than it promises. It is indeed a succinct, thoughtful, and intellectually stimulating study of what its title describes. However, it is something rarer, a history of Burma with the perspective necessary to explain why the country is as it is today.' Robert H. Taylor, Visiting Professorial Fellow, Institute of South East Asian Studies, Singapore, and author of The State In Myanmar

Book Description

For the first time, Burma's economic failure in the second half of the twentieth century is set firmly within the context of the country's earlier colonial period. This is an incomparable introduction to Burma's political and economic history for students in Southeast Asian history, development studies and political science.
