All the basic information is here but not a compelling read.

THE RIVER OF LOST FOOTSTEPS is a remarkable, long and dense, yet smooth reading history of Burma, now Myanmar.

Though the tale would benefit from improved chronology, it is thorough with a strong vein of irony, which unfortunately
has not changed the Luck of Burma away from poverty, corruption, isolation, destruction, starvation, mutiny, ethnic hatred, and horror.

Monarchy. Army. U Nu and U Thant. Army.

One of those rare books which you regret finishing... you want more! The author comes across as a wise, utterly civilized, informed, enlightened soul with deep insights and a wide intellectual and emotional canvas. A bonus for Indians is his foray into the Indian Northeast, and his appeciation of the contributions to Southeast Asia from the Indian civilizational world.

Excellent read. A touch of humor, well-written, hugely informative, and written by an "insider'. tis easy to like this book which I acquired and read while in Myanmar.
