Abstract : This account of the Burmese Rebellion of 1930-1931, and the role of its leader, Saya San, emphasizes the importance of traditional elements in what is commonly regarded as a nationalist uprising. The document holds that the apparently nationalistic symbols of the rebellion had magical and protective functions that were not appreciated at the time. (Author)
