The Voice of Young Burma

The Voice of Young Burma

Aye Kyaw
This work explores the history of the university in Burma, both as an institution founded by the colonizing British, and as a medium for change that was used by Burmese students in their struggles for independence. Aye Kyaw describes student protests, strikes, and boycotts that were part of a nationalist movement calling for the study of Burmese culture, history, and language. As this discourse evolved, it invited radical explorations of such concepts as democracy, justice, and freedom.
