Burma's Foreign Relations: Neutralism in Theory and Practice

Synopsis

The first comprehensive study of its kind, this volume presents a systematic analysis of Burma's foreign relations in theory and in practice since the country's independence in 1948. The author chronicles the development of Burma's foreign policy and examines the factors or circumstances which influenced the adoption of neutralism as the cornerstone of the country's foreign policy. Special attention is paid to Burma's relations with major countries both within and outside Asia in order to demonstrate the differences between the stated theory and actual practice of neutralism.
