The history of Myanmar is one defined by change. The names of its cities have changed over time, and even the name of the nation itself has changed from Burma to Myanmar! Readers trace these changes through updated main text that covers both historical and current events in detail. In addition, fact boxes highlight the language, geography, and other amazing aspects of life in Myanmar. Readers are also introduced to the concept of global citizenship as they explore sidebars that include biographies of inspiring citizens. Full-color photographs, maps, and recipes add even more to this educational and engaging reading experience.
