Publisher Description

Observations on Cambodia’s last days of peace, the Khmer Rouge genocide, and the nation’s troubled present—from a Pulitzer Prize–winning correspondent.
 
With a controversial election won by the ruling party of Prime Minister Hun Sen—extending his more-than-thirty years in power—Cambodia is once again the focus of worldwide concern. But to understand Cambodia now, one must understand its past . . .
 
Based on his observations over three decades, Henry Kamm, Pulitzer Prize–winning New York Times Southeast Asia correspondent, unravels the complexities of this once-peaceful country. Kamm, the author of Dragon Ascending: Vietnam and the Vietnamese, has provided an invaluable document: a factual and personal account of Cambodia’s volatile history, giving the Western reader the first clear understanding of this magical land’s past and present.
 
“Kamm’s profound insights and surprising opinions about Indochina make fascinating reading.” —Dan Rather, New York Times–bestselling author of Rather Outspoken
 
“Kamm’s account of Cambodia’s long tragedy is spare, blunt and angry. . . . A tribute to the quality of Kamm’s journalism over the years.” —The New York Times Book Review
