    schema:reviewBody ""This volume outlines the evolution and development of one of the most splendid and long-lived civilizations of the entire Asian continent. Now most fully represented in northern Cambodia, the Khmer culture was once widespread throughout an area that exceeds the borders of the Indo-Chinese peninsula. The Khmer civilization assimilated and made its own many religious, cultural and artistic elements that derived from a much larger area, embodying them in a conception of the world, the supernatural, and political power which in many aspects is unique." "Presenting both the classic vision of this civilization and also the latest theories about it, this volume is aimed at those who wish to learn the essential facts of Khmer history and culture, stripped of platitudes and romantic visions, in clear language that both tells a story and includes incisive anecdotes. The result is a fascinating, concise yet comprehensive description of the rise, glories and fall of the Khmer civilization - one which is sure to prompt the reader to make a personal visit to the magnificent remains of an empire born to last forever and which today is the heritage and pride of a small, vibrant nation."--Jacket." ;
