The Soul of a People by Harold Fielding Hall $18.00

The Soul of a People by Harold Fielding Hall in 1898

From the Bibliotheca Orientalis series - Burma Vol. 4

Bibliotheca Orientalis is a series of reprints of research monographs and studies related to a wide range of aspects of Asian culture, mainly arts, crafts, architecture and historical source material. The series is classified by country.

The Soul of a People. This book ran into four editions and a further six reprintings between 1898 and 1911. No wonder. The author provides delightful insights into Burmese thought, based on his long years of residence and travel throughout the country. The book uses his understanding of Burmese Buddhism as the framework for explaining Burmese attitudes towards government, crime and punishment, war, death, manners of behaviour, women, divorce, the monkhood, prayer, festivals, nat spirits, and the avoidance of killing many living creatures. The book's charm also lies in the obvious love the author had for the Burmese people and his straightforward writing style.
