Eve Zucker’s monograph Forest of Struggle builds on an ethnographic study conducted a decade ago in a village in the Cardamom Mountains of Southwestern Cambodia. The author is interested in the relationship between social memory, violence, trauma, and morality, and asks broadly how communities manage painful memories and come together again after violent conflict to rebuild their community. She explores the thirty years after 1970, during which Khmer Rouge forces were based in the region.
