A participant in the continuing Angkor investigations, the author has spent recent years helping to reconstruct and un-cover temples, ornamental shrines, and palaces. These discoveries, particularly the statues & artifacts, have enabled him to re-date authoritatively a number of events in Angkor history. In addition to providing a detailed analysis of Khmer society, its government, economics, and ethnic and intellectual characteristics, his text includes a stylistic summary of the major periods in Khmer art from the 7th to the 13th centuries and a note on the iconography. A great resource by two of the leading exponents of Southeast Asian art history.
