"This is an unpretentious book, but it brings out with unusual clearness the dilemma that faces every official in an empire like our own." George Orwell TRIALS IN BURMA recounts Maurice Collis' experiences as a district magistrate in Rangoon in the late 1920s. The book recounts his gradual realisation that far from administering an impartial system of justice, he is expected to protect British interests. Wriiten in a cool dispassionate style, Collis describes how - be choosing integrity over career, he eventually loses his job. "A brilliant, direct and extraordinarily vivid account of this troubled period...a masterly survey of the Burmese scene." Daily Mail
