About This Book
In this book on Cambodia, journalist/photographer looks at the country's troubled state in the light of its political and cultural history. Many personal stories and anecdotes are drawn from the present and from the Cambodia's long and chequered past. After a personalised overview of the country's background and foreground there is a wide-ranging discussion of the nature and impact of the important and often exploitative tourist industry based on Angkor. Western and other perceptions of violence, including the harvesting of human gall and cannibalism as well as the Khmer Rouge horrors, are all discussed together with the impact of Western and Cambodia films including the blockbuster "Killing Fields".
With many vivid colour photographs and bibliography.
