The Pol Pot Regime: Race, Power, and Genocide in Cambodia Under the Khmer Rouge, 1975-79

by Ben Kiernan - £18.99  Yale University Press (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780300144345 | ISBN 10: 0300144342

This third edtion of Ben Kiernan's definitive account of the Cambodian revolution and genocide includes a new preface that takes the story up to 2008 and the UN-sponsored Khmer Rouge tribunal.

"In this authoritative work, Ben Kiernan...explores the reasons why Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge revolution became a Cambodian nightmare."
(Richard Gough, Times Higher Education Supplement)
"Perhaps the most complete [account of Pol Pot's terror] and the closest to Cambodian sources."
"The most detailed history to date of the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime...this book ...will certainly be the benchmark against which all future reseacrh on the Khmer Rouge must be measured. Very highly recommended."
