This book addresses the key question of the ongoing role of the military in Burma's foreign policy. It provides a fresh perspective on Burma's foreign and security policies, which have shifted between pro-active diplomacies of neutralism and non-alignment, and autarkical policies of isolation and xenophobic nationalism. It argues that key elements of continuity underlie Burma's striking postcolonial policy changes and contrasting diplomatic practices.
