Myanmar’s move to democracy was universally lauded: a peaceful, majority-Buddhist population, led by civilian leaders like Aung San Suu Kyi, overthrowing
decades of oppressive militarily rule. Then, in June 2012, fighting between
Buddhists and Muslims broke out in western Myanmar and spread across the country,
leaving hundreds dead and pointing to a growing divide between religious
communities. But it took only the eruption of extreme violence in 2017 for the international
community to take notice. In what the UN called ‘a textbook example of ethnic
cleansing’, Rohingya Muslim villages were razed, thousands of men, women and children were killed - with hundreds of thousands more displaced - in a frenzy of brutality.

Wade witnessed first-hand how an anxious ruling elite laid the foundations for the
violence and perpetuated its execution. In this updated edition of the book that foreshadowed a genocide, Wade
further explores these events that shocked the world and examines their legacy
— both within Myanmar and the wider international community.
