"Cambodia s turbulent history makes the richness and fragility of its architectural and artistic legacy strikingly apparent. World-famous, breathtaking sites such as Angkor Wat, Banteay Srei and Preah Vihear have tended to overshadow a wealth of lesser-known buildings and complexes buried in the jungle. Many photographs are published here for the first time, including sites that have, until now, been almost impossible to see. Scores of sites are treated to the author's historical analysis."--Jacket." ;
