The People's Republic of Kampuchea 1979-1989: The Revolution After Pol Pot
By Margaret Slocomb
This book examines the Cambodian revolution before and after Pol Pot and attempts to explain the reasons for its ultimate failure. In particular, it traces the efforts of the post-DK regime, that of the People's Republic of Kampuchea, to rebuild both the state and revolution. Many factors intervened to defeat their efforts to restore the revolution. Nevertheless, the PRK did rebuild the state and the economy, and it helped return people's lives to the conditions of pre-revolutionary days.
Margaret Slocomb has a doctorate in history from the University of Queensland, Australia. She has lived and worked in Cambodia since 1988.
