Burma, the State of Myanmar

By David I. Steinberg | Go to book overview

Further Reading

There is a wide spectrum of writing on Burmese history that provides the necessary background for discussion of the period since 1988. These writings have not been listed in this bibliography because it would be redundant with other bibliographies, although they have provided the basis for much of this study of Burma/Myanmar. These works may be found as standard references to any study of the country. In addition to the works listed below, there are travel volumes and personal memoirs that add color to the landscape. In addition, there are periodicals and electronic media that carry important information on contemporary issues. Among the publications are Asian Survey, Pacific Affairs, Contemporary Southeast Asia, and Burma De- bate (Washington, D. C.). The annual volume on Southeast Asian Affairs (Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore) often has helpful articles, as does the Far Eastern Economic Review Yearbook. That publication and Asiaweek also have articles on immediate issues. The Asian Wall Street Journal is an important source as well. There is considerable coverage on Burma/Myanmar in the Bangkok Post, The Nation (Bangkok), and the South China Morning Post (Hong Kong). For a government view, consult the controlled New Light of Myanmar, formally called the Working People’s Daily (Yangon), and the weekly launched in February 2000, the Myanmar Times and Business Weekly (Yangon).

Myanmar publications also include annual reports on the social and economic conditions of the country, and some statistical and trade publications appear in English. Assessments of economic conditions can be found in World Bank and ADB publications (and on their web sites).

The Burmese government distributes electronically a newsletter, and further information from a broader perspective may be found on the Burma Fund web site and on that of the Soros Foundation.
