Description - Karenni by Dean Chapman

Burmese forces invaded the Karenni state on August 8th, 1948, and eventually annexed the independent sovereign nation. Since this time, the Karenni have been waging a war of resistance against successive Rangoon Governments whose attempts to subdue the population have included military occupation, mass relocation of civilians and human rights abuse. The desire of the Karenni for independence is now even stronger. Dean Chapman is a photojournalist who lived with the Karenni people and army for some two years. This book combines the drama and horror of front line combat against a background of the daily lives of the people. It recounts Chapman's experiences and portrays the commitment of the Karenni people.
