Burma and Japan Since 1940

From ’Co-Prosperity’ to ’Quiet Dialogue’

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. Tracing Burma-Japan relations since 1940, this volume provides an understanding of post-war Japanese diplomacy and aid programmes, and offers material and insights on the story of Burma itself.
