Description

This study probes the complex relationship between nationalism, violence and Buddhism in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Burma. Gravers' study brings us to present-day Burma and the struggle by Nobel Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi for a new Burmese identity.

The present volume is a substantially revised and expanded version of the study originally published by the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies.
