A book of articles about Myanmar-China relations and the history of the pre-Bagan Pyu people, written by the late historian U Yi Sein and compiled U Thaw Kaung, has been published.

The book, titled The Selected Writings of U Yi Sein, includes seven articles in English and 28 in Myanmar language, written by U Yi Sein, who was born in Pyapon, Ayeyarwady Region, but passed away in Taipei in 2005.

The articles cover the history of Myanmar from the 1st to the 20th centuries CE, focusing on Myanmar’s relations with China as well as Chinese records of the Pyu people.

“U Yi Sein, whose Chinese name was Mr Chen Yi-sein, wrote articles on Myanmar-China relations in the Chinese language for Yangon Chinatown newspapers at the age of 30,” said U Thaw Kaung, a retired librarian and historian.
