Published twenty-five years after the defeat of the Khmer Rouge regime, In the Shadow of Angkor captures the resurgence of the Cambodian arts community and its efforts to restore a rich literary heritage. In many of the works, the artists defy the decimation of their brothers and sisters by the Khmer Rouge, as well the attempt to erase Cambodia's memory of its history. The range of expression is impressive: the volume includes poetry, short story, film, rap lyrics, and essays, plus interviews with authors and a portfolio of photographs of Cambodia.

What People Are Saying

Carol Wagner
A beautiful tribute to the Cambodian spirit, this remarkable collection reveals the heartbreaking tragedy and the heart-healing hope that fall within the recent Cambodian experience.
author of Soul Survivors: Stories of Women and Children in Cambodia and director of Friendship with Cambodia.
David Chandler
In the Shadow of Angkor exposes us to the vibrant, multifaceted written culture that flourishes in Cambodia today.
author of A History of Cambodia and Brother Number One: A Political Biography of Pol Pot.
Dith Pran
In the Shadow of Angkor does a commendable service to Cambodia's people, reminding the world of the strength of character that has enabled Cambodians to courageously bear witness to intolerable suffering­and now, aided by the renewal of the arts and literature, to begin a nationwide healing. Genocide is not the problem of the people to whom it happened; it is everyone's problem. This wonderfully inspiring book will increase the reader's awareness of the responsibility we all have in ending such recurring tragedies.
founder and president of The Dith Pran Holocaust Awareness Project and the compiler of Children of Cambodia's Killing Fields: Memoirs by Survivors.
