by Karen J. Coates, Cambodia Now Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Cambodia Now books, Cambodia has never recovered from its Khmer Rouge past. The genocidal regime of 1975–1979 and the following two decades of civil war ripped the country apart. This work examines Cambodia in the aftermath, focusing on Khmer people of all walks of life and examining through their eyes key facets of Cambodian society, including the ancient Angkor legacy, relations with neighboring countries (particularly the strained ones with the Vietnamese), emerging democracy, psychology, violence, health, family, poverty, the environment, and the nation’s future. Along with print sources, research is drawn from hundreds of interviews with Cambodians, including farmers, royalty, beggars, teachers, monks, orphanage heads, politicians, and non-native experts on Cambodia. Dozens of exquisite photographs of Cambodian people and places illustrate the work, which concludes with a glossary of Cambodian words, people, places and names, and an appendix of organizations providing aid to Cambodia.

Genocide claimed millions of lives and orphaned and deprived many children. Antipersonnel mines still threaten their safety and despite these bleak conditions, Cambodian children still smile. If you visit Cambodia, you'll still find people who know how to open their arms in welcome. The French association Act for Cambodia founded and now runs the Sala Bai Hotel and Restaurant School. This association has been helping Cambodians since 1984, when it brought aid to the crowds of refugees crossing the borders of Thailand to flee the cruelty of the Khmer Rouge and all the terrible events that struck their nation at that time.

by Research Associate Centre for International and Strategic Studies Sorpong Peou, Conflict Neutralization In The Cambodia War Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Conflict Neutralization In The Cambodia War books, Many scholars have painted a grim picture of Cambodia. When the United Nations (UN) intervened in this country between November 1991 and May 1993, they prognosticated that the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC) was a mission bound to fail because, as socio-cultural institutionalists put it, it was based on Western ideas and liberal values. Legalists/moralists castigated the UN plan because it included the Khmer Rouge in the electoral process. Although this book recognizes the compelling arguments put forward by these scholars, the author tells his readers otherwise. He explains why the UN succeeded in getting the Cambodian adversaries to accept its peace plan and yet why the implementation process was not as successful as it had been anticipated. He then proposes that a more value-free psycho-structural approach to conflict analysis, known as conflict neutralization (based on the concept of security rather than that of power or peace), be seriously considered. This book is written by a Cambodian-Canadian scholar who believes that the world does not fully understand domestic conflicts in Third World countries in general and the Cambodian conflict in particular. He holds that Cambodia cannot stand on its own feet unless everyone involved clearly understands its intractable problems.
