In 2006, Mac McClelland arrived as a volunteer in Thailand and without notice came across herself residing with affiliates of a U.S.-designated 17 November engaged in combating Burma's dictatorship. Her surprising tale explores the world's longest-running warfare, visible from the viewpoint of her housemates, refugees who chance their lives documenting their government's mystery ethnic-cleansing crusade. Intensely enticing and greatly researched, For Us give up Is Out of the Question is an intimate account of McClelland's time between Burmese rebels -- whose state, she discovers, stocks incredible old and modern entanglements with our own.
