Warrior Prince: Norodom Ranariddh, Son of King Sihanouk of Cambodia
This is the first biography of Prince Norodom Ranariddh, arguably the most successful of Cambodia's King Sihanouk's children. Part royal chronicle, part reportage, it traces the life of Ranariddh from birth, through tragedy to triumphant rise as First Prime Minister, and from his downfall when he was overthrown, to his resurrection. It offers deep insights into the character of Ranariddh and that of his father: how Sihanouk repeatedly let down his son, while offering him the affection of an aloof parent. Based on many hours of interviews, a first hand editorially independent biography of Prince Norodom Ranariddh Sihanouk -- a leader whose public life differs so very greatly from his private one.
