Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Much has been written, dramatized, and debated about the Vietnam War and American involvement. But far too little is known about Vietnam's tragic neighbor, Cambodia. In Cambodia: Report from a Stricken Land, former Southeast Asia correspondent for The New York Times and Pulitzer Prize winner Henry Kamm gives a clear and definitive history of contemporary Cambodia from 1970 to the present. For the first time, Kamm offers Western readers a much-needed analysis and understanding of those thirty turbulent years of revolution, invasion, coups d' tat, and genocide.Beginning with the overthrow of Prince Norodom Sihanouk in March 1970, Cambodia: Report from a Stricken Land clarifies the course of events that led to this tragedy: the establishment of the Khmer Rouges' Communist regime and their reign of terror from 1975 to 1979, the Vietnamese invasion that toppled them, the peace settlement in Paris in 1991, the ongoing jockeying for power, and Pol Pot's ultimate political demise, his flight into the jungle, and his mysterious death. Kamm pays special attention to the role the United States, Vietnam, and other countries played in Cambodia's evolution.The crippling economic and social effects of the years of unremitting violence and political upheaval remain disturbingly visible. In answering the questions, What happened? and Why? Kamm pulls no punches, and in contemplating who will lead this country into the new millennium--if there is in fact a country to lead--he brings to the forefront the gravity of the Cambodian situation and the desperation of its people. This timely book will at once shock, enlighten, and move readers. At long last, it gives the world a balanced, compassionate, and informed look at a land and a people too long ignored.

Synopsis:

A sobering perspective on Cambodia's recent, often tragic, history.
