    1. I read this because I was making a six-week trip to Cambodia. In another life, at the BBC, I used to edit monitored transcripts from Cambodian media.That was in the 1980s, after the Vietnamese had booted out the Khmer Rouge, but before Cambodia became the constitutional monarchy it is now. There have been a lot of books about the Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot, and I chose this one because it was in the bibliography for Margaret Drabble's masterwork 'The Gates of Ivory', published in 1991, when the Khm [...]

    2. An interesting, thorough and well-written and researched book which fills in gaps for me about the past of Cambodia, 1930's - 1975 to be precise.

    3. it seems like its going to be hard to read. especially as i like to drink a lot, but i hope to read it soon. sometimes i wish you could sleep with a book under your pillow and osmosis would just let all the knowledge sort of seep in.

    4. Disappointing because it was little more than an agglomeration of gossip intended to prove the evil that was Pol Pot rather than an honest to goodness investigation on why their revolutionary experiment went awry.
