9780197265550: Being and Becoming Kachin: Histories Beyond the State in the Borderworlds of Burma

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.

Book Description:

bold and exciting scholarship ... Her work skillfully integrates stories of complex historical forces to explain the ways that local, regional, national and global logics of affiliation have become part of everyday lived experiences. ( Nicholas Farrelly, SOJOURN: Journal of Social Issues in Southeast Asia)

offers unprecedented opportunity for fresh insights into Kachin studies ( La Raw Maran, SOJOURN: Journal of Social Issues in Southeast Asia)

Mandy Sadan has written the most important book on the Kachin in a long time ... I want very highly to recommend Being and Becoming Kachin as a lasting achievement. Sadan's rich book is a tremendous contribution to understanding the Kachin and their history. It opens a new era of scholarly discussion. For the peoples of Burma and beyond, it could also contribute towards the process of finding new ways of reconciliation, and future-building. ( Magnus Fiskesjö, New Mandala)

[a] voluminous treasure-trove of a history book ... a book like this deserves a wide audience ... It is the first and only work of its kind — a compendium of information that also brings together previously published and unpublished sources ... It has a depth that a political science study cannot encompass and it makes a unique and very timely contribution in many ways. ( Dr. Khin Zaw Win, Kachinland News)

This is essential reading for anyone hoping to understand the long-running and bitter war in Burma's northern borderworlds. It also makes an enormous contribution to our understanding of the colonial and postcolonial history of the region ... a powerful affirmation of historians' wider ability to uncover the histories of some of the world's most marginalized peoples. ( Jonathan Saha, American Historical Review)

This important book is the result of years of detailed and difficult research. ( Asian Affairs)
