About This Book

This is the paperback edition of Philip Short's 2004 comprehensive, illuminating and much-needed study of Pol Pot's life and the impact he has made. This book gives an account of Cambodia's recent history as well as biography of Pol Pot (born Saloth Sar in 1925 and died as Pol Pot in 1998). Events often incomprehensible to the outsider are set into the context of colonial and national traditions, revolutionary idealism, devious cross-national aims and interventions, and imposed "collateral damage". The reasoning and conduct of Pol Pot and those around him are discussed . With insightful black and white photographs, dramatis personae list, references, bibliography and index.
