Summary "Recognizing that considerable research remains to be done on Cambodia's political history and leaders, this Dictionary makes a large contribution to Cambodia and prominent Cambodians. This comprehensive work offers biographical details on the rulers, leaders, and opinion-makers from the time of Jayavarman II to Hun Sen and detailing key events and recent political developments. It also reveals unexpected continuities and discontinuities in elite composition and national ideological outlooks. The introduction sketches the transformation in national regime organization from the time of the Angkor Empire through colonial subordination by the French and into the country's independence. The comprehensive bibliography of classic works available on the country includes a small number of recently completed doctoral dissertations to indicate current scholarly trends."--BOOK JACKET
