Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This book is concerned with Burundian Hutu refugeesliving in Tanzania who fled their home country in following genocidal attacks organized by the Tutsi-dominated Burundian government. The focus is on the ways the displacement expereince led to the creation of 'essentialist' Hutu and Tutsi ethnic identities and the horrible violence that has been generated from them in Burundi and neigboring countries.

The author achieves this goal by comparing the lives of 'camp refugees' in Mishamo to that of the 'town refugees' in Kigoma. The book argues that the expereince of being a 'camp refugee' has in fact exacerbated political and ethnic conflict through the production of 'mythico-historical' world views.

This study of Hutu refugees from Burundi, driven into exile in Tanzania after their insurrection against the dominant Tutsi was brutally quashed, shows how experiences of dispossession and violence are remembered and turned into narratives, and how this process helps to construct identities such as "Hutu" and "Tutsi. Those living in organized camps created an elaborate "mythico-history" of the Hutu people, which gave significance to exile, and envisioned a collective return to the homeland of Burundi. Other refugees, who had assimilated in a more urban setting, crafted identities in response to the practical circumstances of their day-to-day lives. Malkki reveals how such things as national identity, historical consciousness and the social imagination of "enemies" get constructed in the process of everyday life.
