‘This book aims at providing a succinct visual conspectus of the civilization of ancient Cambodia. For this purpose we have chosen Angkor, which for six centuries was the centre of the kingdom, and whose monuments still bear witness to the genius of the Khmers who built it.’ A very well illustrated and informative volume.
