At the Edge of the Forest: Essays on Cambodia, History, and Narrative in Honor of David Chandler. These 14 essays are written by or in honour of the innovative Cambodia scholar, David Chandler (b. 1933), who since the early 1960s has been exploring aspects of Cambodia's pre-Colonial history. The papers offer alternative readings of pre-1863 events and culture. Mystical/religious/legendary perceptions are explored and discussed. The significance of these poetic/narrative elements in Cambodia's fraught past and recent history are also raised.
