Product Description

Philip Short's masterly narrative reveals how Pol Pot engineered his country's desolation, fashioning the definitive portrait of the man who headed one of the most enigmatic and terrifying regimes of modern times. Short observed Pol Pot at close quarters during the one and only official visit Pol ever made abroad, to China, in 1975. He was struck by Pol Pot's charm and charisma, yet, soon after, the leader would emerge as the architect of one of the most radical and ruthless experiments in social engineering ever undertaken. More than a million Cambodians perished in the notorious 'killing fields' implemented by the Khmer Rouge of Pol Pot. Notes and Sources, Index. Illus., b&w photos. 537p.
