More than forty years after its first publication, David Chandler's historical essay remains a reference thanks to its scope and clarity. Reflecting the trends in the 1970s school of history, it stresses economical and sociological factors, and obviously many new findings on the Angkor civilization were not available to the author, yet the book remains a must-read nowadays.
