It has been almost 60 years since the Karen took up arms against the Burmese dictatorship to fight for an independent homeland, but theirs is a nationalist struggle that shows no sign of exhaustion. Secret Genocide is a scholarly work on the plight of the Karen of Burma. Pedersen writes about the secret genocide of the Karen people at the hands of the Burmese junta, who murder, rape and torture to quell their enemies. Decades after the Karen took up the fight, there is still no telling when - or if - their plight will be relieved.
