Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0313208247, Hardcover)

The long struggle which led to the British take-over of Burma in the 1880s was not a typical one-sided colonial conflict. It was an epic cultural, political, economic, and military confrontation between two confident and self-interested empires, one traditional and Asian in outlook, the other modern, commercial, and aggressive. This fascinating book is the first scholarly treatment of a critical phase in British-Burmese relations.
