The Volume reopens the chapter of ‘Bengali Literary Renaissance’ at the court of Mrauk-U (Bengali: Rosanga) during the fifteenth-seventeenth centuries. The problem of the Rohingyas canot be understood without taking note of the spread of the Bengali language and the polymorphism accommodating Buddhism, Vaishnavism and Sufi-dominated Islam in various p[arts of South Asia. Yet, going beyond the Buddhist-Muslim dichotomy, the volume takes up dichotomies which both existed (and were partly created) in the form of hill versus plains, tribal versus non-tribal, urban versus rural, original bona fide residents versus immigrants etc. No earlier work has dealt with the policies followed by U Nu and Ne Win governments towards this particular state within the context of regional politics in South Asia.
