(p.113) 6 Burmese Loyalty Structure and the Dual Domination Paradigm
Race and Religion in American Buddhism

Joseph Cheah

Oxford University Press

In their adaptation of Buddhist practices to the American landscape, Burmese immigrant Buddhists have contended with not only domestic forces that demand conformity but also extraterritorial forces that expects loyalty to and affinity with the homeland. This chapter examines the transnational politics that shapes the lives of Burmese immigrants and refugees. It looks at the manner in which the Burmese military junta has attempted to influence the Burmese in the American diaspora, and the manner in which Burmese immigrants and refugees have or have not responded to the transnational outreach of the military regime.

Keywords:   conformity, domestic, diaspora, extraterritorial force, loyalty, homeland, transnational politics, military regime
