Ebook Description

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.
