Scott O’Connor served in Burma at the turn of the century as a British colonial officer. His extensive travels took him to numerous cities, all of which had had a great influence on Burmese history, art and culture. From his experiences, the author recreates Burmese history through that of important early cities. Mandalay, for which he had a special affection, Sagaing, Ava, Amarapura, Pagan, Pegu, Prome, Thare-kettaya (Sri-kshetra), Mergui, Tagoung, and the monastery complex at Po-u-daung.
