Zalin Grant brings a wealth of experience and dedication to the subject of prisoners of war in Southeast Asia. His field work in Cambodia in the early 1970's continues today as he returns to Cambodia to monitor US government follow-up of information he recently uncovered on journalists executed by the Khmer Rouge. An experienced interviewer and questioner, Zalin Grant brings out details that others routinely fail to discover. The Committee to Protect Journalists, will, I hope, follow Mr. Grant's example and do more to discover the fates of journalists lost in Cambodia.

Grant relays a sometimes disturbing, sometimes curious but always thought proving look at the lives these men endured from the time of their capture to their liberation. a kean look at how people will act and how they adapt, or die in a situation that no one shoud ever have to live through.
