Burma: Another casualty of divida et impera
1983 (English)Collection (editor) (Other academic)
To what extent was the British policy of 'divida et impera' responsible for the birth of Burma's jingoist, national military?
The paper explores four deep-rooted historical factors.
-the suppression of Burman military tradition and exclusion of the Burmese majority from the military forces.
-direct and indirect policies for the administration of Burma.
-disproportionately high level of ethnic minority recruitment in the military.
-the clash of different military cultural ideologies.
