9780197265550: Being and Becoming Kachin: Histories Beyond the State in the Borderworlds of Burma (British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship Monographs)

Since independence in 1948, Burma has suffered from many internal conflicts. One of the most long-standing of these has been in the Kachin State, in the far north of the country where Burma has borders with India to the west and China to the east. In Being and Becoming Kachin Mandy Sadan explores the origins of the conflict that started in 1961 and why it has continued for so long.

Being and Becoming Kachin takes a much longer view of the problems that have led to such severe divisions between the political heartland of Burma and one of its most important 'peripheries' than is usually the case. It illuminates how the experience of globalisation since the late eighteenth century has been implicated in this division, and how the geopolitics of competing imperial systems through the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries reinforced and entrenched it.

The analysis draws upon a study of many local archival materials in Jinghpaw, including the first detailed study of ritual and ritual language since the time of Edmund Leach. It offers new insights into how regions such as the Kachin State have been created by modern world systems, as well as how and why the post-independence Burmese state has failed to incorporate the Kachin region without the production of long-term violence.

Review Essay I: Nicholas Farrelly

"What if they just change the name to 'Northern Region'?" The question, when put to me, hangs awkwardly in the steamy tropical air. The subtext, a plea for recognition and status, is one that I have heard before. It is born of trepidation about the future of the Kachin, and their Kachin State, in Myanmar's new politics. Names are powerful. In 2014 the notion that Kachin State makes a natural contribution to the world's geopolitical imaginary is facing one of its most serious threats. The fear is...

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Since independence in 1948, Burma has suffered from many internal conflicts. One of the longest of these has been in the Kachin State, in the far north of the country where Burma has borders with India to the west and China to the east. In Being and Becoming Kachin Mandy Sadan explores the origins of the armed movement that started in 1961 and considers why it has continued for so long. Being and Becoming Kachin places the problems that have led to hostilities between the political heartland of Burma and one of its most important peripheries in a longer perspective than is usually the case. It explains how the experience of globalisation and the geopolitics of competing imperial systems from the late eighteenth century onwards produced and then entrenched the politics of exclusion and resistance. However, it also uses detailed ethnographic research to explore the social and cultural dynamics of Kachin ethno-nationalism as it emerged during this period, providing a rich analysis that goes beyond the purely political. The research draws upon an extensive range of sources, including archival materials in Jinghpaw and an extensive study of ritual and ritual language. Making a wide variety of cross-disciplinary observations, it explains in depth and breadth how a region such as the Kachin State came into being. When combined with detailed local insights into how these experiences contributed to the historical development of modern Kachin ethno-nationalism, Being and Becoming Kachin encourages new ways of thinking about the Kachin region and its history of armed resistance, which has implications for how we understand many similar, troubled borderworlds in Burma and beyond.
