really liked it
bookshelves: history-biography
Read in January, 2010

After reading many books on the experiences of Cambodians during the Pol Pot regime it was interesting to get another perspective of the event, that of a French ethnologist living in Cambodia, his experience with his Khmer family, captivity and his interaction with his captors. It is both grim and chilling as we see the changes in people based on their circumstnaces and find how the crucible of human character works in such a volatile situation.
