Burma and Japan since 1940: From ‘Co-Prosperity’ to ‘Quiet Dialogue’
- About the Book
Modern Myanmar/Burma is very much a creation of World War II, when the British colony was occupied by the Japanese, and its immediate aftermath. These years saw the rise of Aung San and his assassination, as well as the establishment of military forces by the Japanese (subsequently evolving into today’s ruling junta) and a sharp escalation of inter-ethnic antagonism and violence. Tracing Burma-Japan relations since 1940, this volume will be of value not only for an understanding of post-war Japanese diplomacy and aid programs, but also because it offers new material and insights on the ongoing story of Burma itself.
