Abstract

This volume looks to explore the life stories of ordinary Burmese by drawing on the narratives of individual subjects and using approaches from anthropology, history, literature, ethnomusicology, economics and political science. The authors of this volume write about stories of their long-term informants, close friends, family members, or even themselves to bring out a wide range of issues relating to migration, economy, politics, religion and culture. Michelle Lawson finds that the strength of this collection is the combined specialism of its writers.
