 Monograph case studies of money and finance in developing countries are scarce and scholarly contemporary works on Burma are even rarer. So this fine book on money and finance in Burma is doubly welcome. […] The book is skilfully constructed and developed. Each chapter is essentially an historical narrative, interwoven with thematic and institutional material.

 Monograph case studies of money and finance in developing countries are scarce and scholarly contemporary works on Burma are even rarer. So this fine book on money and finance in Burma is doubly welcome. […] The book is skilfully constructed and developed. Each chapter is essentially an historical narrative, interwoven with thematic and institutional material. Clarity of understanding is greatly assisted by an introductory section on structure and outline, a timeline of events and, within each chapter, an opening synopsis. […] Turnell has given us a most engaging work, in which substantial historical and empirical research is blended with serious and correct analysis. The book is well-fitted to stand among the other authoritative case studies of financial development in the countries of Southeast Asia.
