A History of Cambodia

Synopsis

This clear and concise volume provides a timely overview of Cambodia, a small but increasingly visible Southeast Asian nation. Hailed by the Journal of Asian Studies as an "original contribution, superior to any other existing work, " the third edition of this acclaimed text has been completely revised and updated to include all-new material examining the death of Pol Pot and the region's continuing rivalry for political power. In addition, Chandler examines the unstable but influential career of Prince Norodom Sihanouk, the bloody reign of Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge, and the relative calm that followed the Vietnamese invasion of 1979. This comprehensive general description and analysis of Cambodia will illuminate -- for specialists and general readers alike -- the history and contemporary politics of a country long misunderstood.
