9781593762650: For Us Surrender Is Out of the Question: A Story from Burma's Never-Ending War

In 2006, Mac McClelland arrived as a volunteer in Thailand and unexpectedly found herself living with associates of a U.S.-designated terrorist organization engaged in battling Burma's dictatorship. Her staggering story explores the world's longest-running war, seen from the point of view of her housemates, refugees who risk their lives documenting their government's secret ethnic-cleansing campaign. Intensely engaging and extensively researched, For Us Surrender Is Out of the Question is an intimate account of McClelland's time among Burmese rebels -- whose country, she discovers, shares surprising historical and contemporary entanglements with our own.

Review:

"Alternately poignant and raucous, angry and heartbreaking...McClelland's reporting is very much from-the-ground-up, far livelier than we will ever get from the average foreign correspondent." -Adam Hochschild

"Any reporting on the notoriously underdocumented Burmese war is critical reading; a page-turner like this one is not to be missed." -San Francisco magazine
