Abstract

Burma is currently ruled by a harsh dictatorship (SPDC) unmoved by activists, whether Asian or Western, and seemingly impermeable to sanctions. With the Karen rebellion, the Union is also the battleground of the longest-running conflict in the world. Drawing both on his own family’s stories and his years of hands-on political experience, the A. gives a clear account of how Burma’s past informs its present. The work is divided in 13 parts. 1 - The Fall of the Kingdom, 2 - Debating Burma, 3 - Foundations, 4 - Pirates and Princes Along the Bay of Bengal, 5 - The Consequences of Patriotism, 6 - War, 7 - Mandalay, 8 - Transitions, 9 - Studying in the age of Extremism, 10 - Making the battlefield, 11 - Alternative Utopias, 12 - The Tiger’s Tail, 13 - Palimpsest. - (GL)
