Michael Aung-Thwin, a professor of Asian studies at the University of Hawaii and a longtime Myanmar scholar, dismisses such criticism as overstated, calling it "propaganda issued by the dissidents." "They made tremendous progress given the resources they had," Dr. Aung-Thwin said. U Win Sein, who was Myanmar's culture minister during the 1990s, has defended the government's renovations, which strived to reconcile antique preservation with Buddhist concepts of donation and refurbishment. "These are living religious monuments highly venerated and worshiped by Myanmar people," he wrote in a state-run newspaper.
Asia Sentinel - A City in the Burmese Junta's Image

Michael Aung-Thwin, a Professor of Asian Studies at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, says the relocation of the capital is seen by the junta as a move back into the historical, cultural and geographic heart of Burma. Naypyidaw lies close to - and has all but absorbed - the township of Pyinmana, which lies at the historical heart of the country. In relocating the capital from Rangoon, which served as the capital under British rule, Aung-Thwin suggests the move represents a concerted rejection of Burma's colonial past.

Michael and Maitrii Aung-Thwin have gone back to original sources to explain the structure of Myanmar's history in a readable, but highly informed, and original single volume.'
...
In A History of Myanmar since Ancient Times, Michael Aung-Thwin and Maitrii Aung-Thwin take us from the sacred stupas of the plains of Bagan to the grand, colonial-era British mansions, revealing the storied past and rich culture of this country. The book traces the traditions and transformations of Myanmar over nearly three millennia, from the relics of its Neolithic civilization to the protests of Buddhist monks in the early twentieth century, the colonial era of British rule and the republic that followed. The authors also consider the present-day life, culture and society of the largest country in mainland Southeast Asia and examine the 2010 elections - its first in over twenty years.
The most comprehensive history of Myanmar ever published in the English language, this book makes a significant contribution to our understanding of Southeast Asian history and will surprise, challenge and inform in equal measure.

Michael Aung-Thwin, Chairman of Asian Studies at the University of Hawaii-Manoa, criticizes the myth that the 1990 elections were to a governing parliament, when every credible scholar nowadays knows that this was not the case and that those elected in 1990 were tasked with drawing up a new Constitution. Note by Network Myanmar: Michael Aung-Thwin is correct.
