Burma at the Turn of the Twenty-first Century

by Monique Skidmore

Burma at the Turn of the Twenty-first Century Synopsis

This is the first study in a half century of one of the least known societies in the contemporary world. Burma at the Turn of the Twenty-First Century provides insight into the everyday lives, concerns, and values of the people of this reclusive nation. Prominent anthropologists and religion scholars with in-depth, long-term knowledge of central Burma offer detailed analyses of the ways in which Burmese actively manage and create lives for themselves in the shadow of a military dictatorship. Their research crosses the domains of religious, political, and social life, examining public festivals and performance, local-state relations, literary life, lottery frenzies, mass meditators, political rumors and black humor, the value of children, changing male identities, and more in this impressive, wide-ranging collection.
