Bowker Data Service Summary
This collection of articles traces Cambodia's recent history and brings to the reader an analysis of the country's development as Cambodia moves on from its war-torn past into a possible liberal democratic future.
Long Description
This edited volume provides a unique, comprehensive view of controversial issues surrounding Cambodia's past, present and possible future development. It brings together a selection of journal articles about the war-torn country to examine critical issues concerning change and continuity in contemporary Cambodian politics. The books covers violence, war and peace, the Constitution, human rights and the pursuit of justice, democratic development and dilemmas, gender and ethnic relations and economic development and problems. These themes will be instructive for scholars, policy makers and interested individuals dealing with what has been termed the triple transition: from armed conflict to the end of violent hostility, from political authoritarianism to liberal democracy and from socialist economic systems to market-driven or capitalist ones. The book shows that the trajectory towards peace, democracy and sustainable development is complex, full of dangers and in need of careful management.
