Burma and Beyond - Sir James George Scott 1932 - Grayson & Grayson, London - First Edition All was ludicrous, but our foreign office has no sense of humour, though it has great delight in the writing of dispatches....’

Profusely illustrated with over 32 photographic plates, and a folding map of Burma and the Shan states, this volume is an informative work on the author’s experiences working in Burma in the early 1930’s.

‘Scott draws on his own observations and those of contemporary colonial officials to sketch the beliefs, customs, and daily life of Burma’s minority ethnic groups - the Shans, Karens, Chins, Kachins, Padaung, etc. The book is illustrated with Scott’s own photographs and contains a final chapter by G.E. Mitton on the Burmans.’ - Patricia Herbert.
