Title: Myanmar Literature Project . Working Paper No. 10:1.1 "The Strike War"
Date of publication: October 2012
Description/subject: Foreword (Hans-Bernd Zöllner): "It's a special pleasure for me to write the foreword for this working paper which is a rather special issue in more than one way. The translator, Stephen Campbell, sent the text to me and asked if it could be included in the Myanmar Literature Project's series of Working Papers. After having a look at the work I realised first that Thakin Po Hla Gyi was no Nagani author but as a Thakin must have shared the political creed of the Nagani founders. Second and more important, his work complements a series of books and pamphlets published by Nagani, notably the two booklets by Ba Hein and Thein Pe on the students' revolution and the involvement in the strike of the oilfield workers in 1938 and the Indo-Burmese riots of the same year respectively (Working Papers 11 an 12 of this series). Therefore, it is very much suited to be included in ths series. Thakin Po Hla Gyi's book very much contributes to understand the revolutionary spirit among the students, workers and nationalists in the year 1938 – 1300 according to the Burmese era. It would be worthwhile to further investigate the events of that year and compare it to the upheavals in Burma's post-war history. Finally, I would like to thank Stephen Campbell very much for his contribution to the Myanmar Lierature Project. The publication of the text coincides with the 75th anniversary of the Nagani Bok Club which will be celebrated in Yangon on November 4th, 2012. Hopefully, this celebration and the changes happening in Myanmar these days will help to broaden the interest in the foundations of Burma's independence in the late colonial period, its impact on later events and its significance for understanding Burmese perceptions of society and politics."
