About this book

British Burma in the New Century draws upon neglected but talented colonial authors to portray Burma between 1895 and 1918, which was the apogee of British governance. These writers, most of them 'Burmaphiles' wrote against widespread misperceptions about Burma.

Before assuming the role of Academic Director he taught at the American University of Sharjah, the National University of Singapore and the College of Charleston. He is the author of Sir Arthur Helps and the Making of Victorianism (2013) and is developing a study of John Ruskin's historical thought which will connect it to the broader issues associated with heritage and historic preservation. His teaching interests are related to British, European and Southeast Asian history, empires and imperialism, historiography and global history.

Reviews

'British Burma in the New Century, 1895-1918 offers an inventive and informative account of colonial rule at its zenith. This perceptive book opens up a striking panorama on the cultural and intellectual dimensions of British imperialism in Burma. The author's keen eye and lucid prose ranges comfortably and convincingly from questions of place, memory, and religious belief to problems of urbanization, crime, and ethnic insurgency.' - Peter John Brobst, Ohio University, USA
