New Old Stock from Discontinued Book Shop 1 Copy Only New but due to its age, there will be faint page yellowing and abrasion. Not for fussy buyers. John Green's photographs of Burma in the 1920s published for the first time, this collection of photographs provide a valuable record of Burma between the wars, when the British and Indian military had a profound impact on its peoples and territories. The images are selected from James Henry Green's extensive photography of recruitment and slave-release campaigns in the northern part of Burma. These photographs - ranging from spectacular landscapes to intimate portraits - serve Green as documentation of his anthropolotical and military work, predominantly among the Kachin, Shan and Chin peoples. Profusely illustrated with two hundred and fifty black and white photographic plates throughout At the boundaries of the British Empire, photography pushed at its own frontiers. These two hundred and fifty photographs, published here as a collection for the first time, provide a valuable and very specific record of Burma between the wars, when the British and Indian military had a profound impact on its people and territories - a key period in the region's political reassessment and redefinition. ***The images are selected from James Henry Green's extensive photography of recruitment and slave-release campaigns in the northern parts of Burma. They explore his personal documentation of the processes of contact, change and exchange in the early part of the twentieth century, at the frontiers of religion, trade, the military, education, and identity. These photographs - ranging from spectacular landscapes to intimate portraits - served Green as documentation of his anthropological and military work, predominantly among the Kachin, Shan and Chin peoples; they also chronicle his personal journeys.' A true first edition in its original dustcover, profusely illustrated with 250 photographs, and extremely hard to find in such fine bright collectible condition.
