During the Vietnam War, violence and unrest spilled into the neighboring country of Cambodia. The result was a four-year reign of the Khmer Rouge and the death of millions of individuals. Henry Kamm, a Pulitzer Prize-winning correspondent for the New York Times, has spent the better part of three decades in the Southeast Asian country, and what he's produced here is a wealth of information and observations, narrated expertly by Walter Dixon, intended to help Westerners understand more about Cambodia's troubled past and their return to peace and progress.
Based on his observations over three decades, Henry Kamm, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times Southeast Asia correspondent, unravels the complexities of Cambodia. Kamm's invaluable document - a factual and personal account of its troubled history - gives the Western listener the first clear understanding of this magic land's past and present.

Not really. The book was written as more of a history and less as prose. The result is that it doesn't flow well when read aloud.

Limited by material
I thought the book was fantastic and thought it might be fun to listen to it on a trip because I'd been meaning to read it again. While the book is fantastic, as an audiobook, it is disappointing.
