In the decades following its annexation to the Indian Empire in
1852, Lower Burma (the Irrawaddy-Sittang delta region) was
transformed from an underdeveloped and sparsely populated backwater
of the Konbaung Empire into the world's largest exporter of rice.
This seminal and far-reaching work focuses on two major aspects of
that transformation: the growth of the agrarian sector of the rice
industry of Lower Burma and the history of the plural society that
evolved largely in response to rapid economic expansion.
