Provides an overview of Cambodia, a small but increasingly visible Southeast Asian nation. This edition includes material examining the early history of Cambodia, whose famous Angkorean ruins attract more than one million tourists each year, the death of Pol Pot, and the revolution and final collapse of the Khmer Rouge.
This candid assessment, covering over 2000 years of Cambodian history, focuses on transformations and historic implications of myths surrounding these changes. In this clear and concise volume, author David Chandler provides a timely overview of Cambodia, a small but increasingly visible Southeast Asian nation. Praised by the "Journal of Asian Studies" as an "original contribution, superior to any other existing work", this acclaimed text has now been completely revised and updated to include material examining the early history of Cambodia, whose famous Angkorean ruins now attract more than one million tourists each year, the death of Pol Pot, and the revolution and final collapse of the Khmer Rouge. The fourth edition reflects recent research by major scholars as well as Chandler's long immersion in the subject and contains an entirely new section on the challenges facing Cambodia today, including an analysis of the current state of politics and sociology, and the increasing pressures of globalization. This comprehensive overview of Cambodia will illuminate, for undergraduate students as well as general readers, the history and contemporary politics of a country long misunderstood.
