Arakan, Past, Present, Future: A Resume Of Two Campaigns For Its Development is a historical book written by John Ogilvy Hay and first published in 1892. The book provides an overview of the region of Arakan, which is located in present-day Myanmar, and its history, culture, and economic development. Hay’s work is divided into two parts, each of which focuses on a different campaign for the development of Arakan. The first campaign was undertaken by the British colonial administration in the 19th century, while the second campaign was initiated by the author himself in the late 1800s. In the first part of the book, Hay discusses the history of Arakan, including its early kingdoms, the arrival of the British, and the impact of colonialism on the region. He also examines the culture and society of the Arakanese people, including their religion, language, and customs. The second part of the book focuses on Hay’s own efforts to develop Arakan in the late 1800s. He discusses the challenges he faced, including the lack of infrastructure and the resistance of the local population to change. He also outlines his vision for the future of Arakan, which included the development of agriculture, industry, and education. Overall, Arakan, Past, Present, Future provides a comprehensive overview of the history and development of Arakan, as well as the challenges and opportunities facing the region in the late 19th century. It is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the history and culture of Myanmar, as well as the impact of colonialism on Southeast Asia.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
