AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Vannary Imam was born in Cambodia, a country the world remembers most for its killing fields. Yet she grew up knowing peace and always believed it would last. The child of a senior government bureaucrat, hers would normally have been a privileged existence but as a child of one Vietnamese and one Cambodian parent, life for Vannary was never going to be simple. When Elephants Fight is an intricate weaving of family history, national politics and personal memoir, and traces three generations of Vannary's family. It is the powerful story of an extraordinary people who, despite the odds, forge a new life for themselves out of the carnage of the killing fields.' (National Library of Australia record.)
