Pamela Gutman
Burma's Lost Kingdoms - Splendours of Arakan
Photographien von Zaw Min Yu
Orchid Press: Bangkok 2001
192 Seiten, 180 Farb- und s/w Fotos, 5 Karten, Chronologie, Bibliographie, Glossar, Index, A4-Großformat.
ISBN 974-8304-98-1

Along the Bay of Bengal, in the northwest corner of Burma, lie the splendid capital cities of ancient Arakan: Dhanyawadi, Vesali, the cities of the Lemro valley and Mrauk-U (Myohaung). Mentioned in Ptolemy's Geography in the 2nd century AD, Arakan was from earliest times a cosmopolitan state with a vigorous and complex culture. Indian Brahmins conducted the royal ceremonial, Buddhist monks spread their teaching, traders came by land and sea, and artists and architects used Indian and Southeast Asian models for inspiration. Through Buddhism, Arakan came into contact with other remote countries, including Sri Lanka, Nepal, Tibet and China. To the east were the many early empires of Southeast Asia: Mon, Khmer, Burman and Siamese; to the west Hindu empires were replaced by the Islamic courts of Bengal and Delhi. This is the first comprehensive study on the history and civilization of Arakan. It serves as an excellent introduction to its hitherto almost unknown schools of sculpture and architecture.

Sylvia Fraser-Lu
Splendour in Wood - The Buddhist Monasteries of Burma.
Orchid Press: Bangkok 2001.
Hardcover, 344 Seiten,über 200 Farbfotos, 150 s/w Abbildungen und Zeichnungen.
ISBN 974-8304-16-7

Burmese wooden monasteries and related pavillions have not received the scholarly attention that they deserve. This is unfortunate, given the especially euphemeral nature of wood in a damp tropical climate, with voracious insect life and the ever-present risk of floods, fire and earthquakes. Many extant structures are in a very dilapidated condition; the original donors have moved away, and/or their decendants no longer have adequate financial resources to maintain a forebear#s work. This book introduces the reader to the beauty and genius of Burmese craftsmanship as expressed in the construction and embellishment of Buddhist wooden monasteries. The five chapters of Part I review the development of Buddhism and monasteries in Burma, the place of monks and monasteries in society, and the processes in building a monastery. Detailed accounts of monastic establishments in the pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial eras are also presented. In the three chapters of Part II are descriptions of nearly ninety different edifices visited by the author in the course of her research, in Upper and Lower Burma, and Central Burma and the Shan states. For posterity, the details of many wooden monasteries are recorded - not only the "old" and the "beautiful", but also others with architectural features of note. The book is copiously illustrated with sketches of floor plans and archictural details of many monasteries, and photographs of significant features.

Bertil Lintner
Land of Jade - A Journey from India through Northern Burma to China.
Orchid Press: Bangkok 1996, 2 überarb. Auflage.
Hardcover, 390 Seiten, 39 Farbfotos, 69 s/w Abbildungen, 7 Karten, Index.
ISBN 974-8299-24-4

In August 1985, "Mr de Souza from Goa", his considerable body wrapped in a blanket, his jet black hair flowing gently in the breeze, and his eyes hidden by huge, dark, stylish sun glasses, arrived in Nagaland. With his diminutive and highly pregnant travel companion, he had slipped past various Indian checkpoints and intelligence setups, and a fantastic journey into hidden Burma began. The book that resulted from this journey has become a classic on recent Burmese history. Bertil Lintner and Hseng Noung spent one and a half years travelling through northern and eastern Burma from 1985 to 1987. Lintner describes with care and deep insight the struggle by the Kachin and Shan ethnic groups against Burmese army rule, and records the decline and fall of the CPB--the Communist Party of Burma. During their 2,275 kilometre trek, at times in great danger, they wrote the history of a 40-year forgotten war, a history which would otherwise never have been committed to paper in such rich detail. Their daughter Hseng Tai was born in Nagaland, India at the inception of the journey. The 1996 edition is updated, and contains a wealth of hitherto unpublished photographic material as well as detailed maps and plans.

K.S. Sandhu / A. Mani (eds.)
Indian Communities in Southeast Asia
ISEAS: Singapore 1993.
Paperback, 998 Seiten.
ISBN 981-210-012-1

In Indian Communities in Southeast Asia thirty-one scholars provide an analytical commentary on the contemporary position of ethnic Indians in Southeast Asia. The books is the outcome of a ten-year project undertaken by the editors at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore. It is multi-disciplinary in focus and multi-faceted in approach, providing a comprehensive account of the way people originating from the Indian subcontinent have integrated themselves in the various Southeast Asian countires. The study provides insights into understanding how Indians, an intra-ethnically diverse immigrant group, have intermingled in Southeast Asia, a region that itself is ethnically diverse.

Walter Grainge White
The Sea Gypsies of Malaya
White Lotus Press: Bangkok 1997 (Reprint von 1922).
Paperback, 350 Seiten, 15 Seiten mit Illustartionen, 1 gefaltete Karte.
ISBN 974-8496-92-9

This book is considered a classic amongst the sparse Moken ethnographic literature. The author was a man with an inquiring mind, full of curiosity, who wished to go beyond the limits of his missionary tasks and relate the story of his personal and research experiences among the sea nomds. The book's most important merit was to reveal the life of the Moken at the beginning of the century. It does this in a very vivid manner. Published in 1922 it sums up the author's fieldwork observations dating from 1911. He writes about the administrative and political structure of Tenasserim (he was responsible for the population census of the Moken), which was the first part of Burma to be surrendered to the British after the Anglo-Burmese war of 1824-1826. His book enables us, on the one hand, to become aware of the nature, fauna and flora of this region, and on the other, the human intrigues involving the English, Indians, Karen, Mons, Malays, Burmese and, of course, the Moken. We become vividly aware, though his writings, of contemporary western arrogance and the developing phenomenon of colonial administration and the ways in which it exploited indigenous wealth. The missionaries, administration, cartographers, geo-graphers and the military were able, long before the ethnologists, to engage in all kinds of work which attracts the interest of present investigators: reports, mapping, census, dictionaries. These are precious instruments for observers of small, non-literate societies.
