"One hundred and fifty years ago the representatives of imperial France were astonished to find half-buried within the Cambodian jungle the still magnificent ruins of vast temples, the remnants of the once great Angkor empire. Since then archaeologists and historians have attempted to piece together its history. This book presents the result of these endeavors in the first account of the history of Khmer civilization to be published for many years.
The authors describe its organization, the daily life of kings, priests and farmers, and the work of the craftsmen who created in stone and bronze the imperial and religious centres of power." - Publisher's description.
