After her mother was killed by a landmine while fleeing from the soldiers, a Burmese girl joins a Resistance group based on the Burmese-Thai border which employs violence as the chief weapon against tyranny. But the violence is not the same as terrorism, as the group operate by abiding the tough-minded pragmatism of Aung San Suu Kyi, known as ‘the Lady’.
Of Crime and Humanity seeks to enlighten readers, through the telling of the adventure of a Burmese girl, of what it is like to be a contemporary of the Lady, and more importantly how Man is held in bitter bondage to his time rigidly and tragically. If there’s an answer to the Lady’s dramatic transformation, it is based on an understanding of compassion and human nature in its complexity and darkness.
Based on true events of the Burmese revolutionary days, Of Crime and Humanity describes what it is like being a Burmese girl living under military brutalisation.
