Burma was conquered by the British in the course of three wars fought in 1825, 1852 and 1885. The British rule in Burma lasted till January 1948. Throughout the period, there were armed uprisings in Burma against foreign rule and its social and economic ramifications. However, scholars working on Burma have been somewhat neglectful of the struggle in the nineteenth century. This work seeks to fill this gap by critically examining the various facets of two different types of uprisings (a) the nineteenth century resistance which followed upon the three wars of conquest; and (b) the revolt led by Saya San in 1930-32.
