about

In this original study British rule in Burma is examined through quotidian acts of corruption. Saha outlines a novel way to study the colonial state as it was experienced in everyday life, revealing a complex world of state practices where legality and illegality were inseparable: the informal world upon which formal colonial power rested.
Jonathan Saha completed his PhD in history at the School of Oriental and African Studies and is now Lecturer in Modern History at the University of Bristol, UK. His research focuses on colonial Burma and he has published several articles on the topics of law, corruption, madness, and gender.
