This edition 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. "Deeply detailed, meticulously reported. . . . Important [and] valuable." -Nation "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." -Economist "One of the most important contributions to the subject so far." -R.

B. Smith, Asian Affairs "Kiernan, the leading authority on modern Cambodia, meticulously examines Pol Pot's killing machine and clears up many misconceptions found in earlier studies. . . . An important book for students of genocide as well as scholars of Southeast Asia." -Library Journal "[A] detailed and chilling history." -Asiaweek "The most detailed history to date of the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime. . . . This book . . . will certainly be the benchmark against which all future research on the Khmer Rouge must be measured.

Very highly recommended." -Choice
