推薦

“… this book helps fill a gap in the literature and makes an important contribution to contemporary Myanmar studies”.
– Andrew Selth, Griffith Asia Institute, Griffith University

“Dense with original research and fresh interpretations of what is happening in Myanmar and why, these essays bode well for the future of scholarship on this no-longer overlooked country.”
—Nick Cheesman, Australian National University

内容

The optimism provoked by Myanmar’s political reforms in 2011–12 has now given way to a sense that the uneven nature of change in this nation of 54 million has lead to instability and uncertainty.
The liberalization of critical sectors and expansion of certain freedoms—such as political and legal opportunities for expression and mobilization—contrasts with the entrenchment of structural problems. It becomes ever more difficult to tackle ethnic marginalization and conflict, over-dependence on natural resource extraction, inadequate public services, and problems of under-capacity in the civilian bureaucracy.
The result is the build up of a toxic environment in which classism, racism, and bigotry threaten to rend Myanmar’s already delicate social fabric.
The contributors to this volume bring unique perspectives and methodologies to bear to unravel Myanmar’s tangled challenges. Whether it is through studying corruption by analyzing the country’s real estate bubble, assessing civil society advocacy capacity against extractive industries, or gauging the strength—and surprising weakness—of Myanmar’s military, the volume employs unconventional approaches and analytical rigor to address a fundamental question: is Myanmar itself unraveling?
