Hellmann-Rajanayagam, Dagmar, Helbardt, Sascha: The Kachin of Myanmar. An Approach to a Complex Political and Social History, pp. 347-378

Although Kachin resistance against the Burmese/Myanmar state has continued since the 1960s, in 1948 the Kachin were enthusiastic supporters of the Panglung Agree­ment and the Union of Burma. The article traces the development and treatment of the Kachin areas since British colonisation and shows how the foundations of the current situation were laid in the early decades of the twentieth century.
