Summary
Myanmar, as Burma is now known, is strategically situated between the world's two most populous nations China and India and its distinctive ancient culture shares some traditions with both countries. It was hidden away from the eyes of the world for half a century by its military rulers' policy of self-isolation. The present administration faces teething problems in politics, governance, education, its dealings with over a hundred ethnic groups, and its society. The Burmese people are by nature friendly and polite, and are traditionally easy-going and peaceable. Most are devout Buddhists, and there are pagodas and meditation centres all over the country. While their hosts may be naturally polite and accommodating, foreign visitors will have to go through a steep learning curve to understand the dos and don'ts of Burmese social customs. This book serves as an essential guide for Western tourists and entrepreneurs who are interested in visiting or doing business in this beautiful, enigmatic, and resource-rich country
