Burmese Prince Myingun is an enigmatic historical figure, at once a rebel who enacted a murderous coup, an exile who never gave up hope and a trickster who moved at the interstices of colonial Southeast Asia at the turn of the 20th century. Dr Penny Edwards, Associate Professor in the Department of South & Southeast Asian Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, is in the final stages of publishing a book a, "Kingdoms of the Mind: Burma’s Fugitive Prince and the Fracturing of Empire", forthcoming with Columbia University Press, about Prince Myingun. She joins us to colour in his historical record.
