Naypyidaw: The New Capital of Burma examines the possible factors involved in the current relocation of the capital in order to enrich and enhance understanding about contemporary Burma/Myanmar in various aspects - including History, Geography, Political Science, Military Science, Economics, Sociology and Urban Architecture. This pioneering work makes the argument that moving the capital from Yangon to Naypyidaw is a profound and multi-faceted strategy which will increase the power of the current military regime to exercise strong and effective control over Burma in the future. Moreover, it provides useful information concerning geographical configuration and urban characteristics inside the new capital; and lastly, this book will greatly contribute to creating an academic knowledge about geopolitical transformations in Southeast Asian urban networks in the twenty-first century. Fully illustrated with maps and colour photographs.
