Abstract

From earliest times to the beginning of 21st century, Burma’s Northeastern Region has been on the edge of nowhere, a fabled land of headhunting and other primitive practices to scare off visitors. Prelude to change came when the Burma Road was build in the late 30’s. The area was affected by the victory of Communism in China in 1949 and the intrusion of the Kuomintang troops. Both troops were striving to build up their strength in this haven and started to recruit soldiers among the local minorities. The region, which became a far-off battlefield during the Cold War politics, emerge from its economic isolation and, with access to wider markets, developed into an area of commercial opium cultivation. The A. used many Burma government files. His book is divided into 5 chapters. 1- Burma’s Northeast Special District ; 2- Kokang during the Colonial Administration Period (1890-948) ; 3- Development Efforts of the Shan State Government ; 4- Intrusion of the KMT Troops into Kokang ; 5- The Administrative Efforts of the Shan State Government. - (GL)
