Khmer Civilization and Angkor

Front Cover
Orchid Press, 2001 - Art - 163 pages
An indispensible introduction to the history and culture of one of the great classical civilizations. Angkor was the capital of an empire that covered most of Indochina, and this guidebook covers not only Angkor in detail but many other sites in Cambodia and Thailand. Snellgrove paints a vivid picture of the Khmer empire, putting the monuments in their historical, artistic and social context. His seemingly boundless energy and intellectual curiosity make this a fascinating read and always informative companion.
