- Cambodia : report from a stricken land / Henry Kamm.
I liked the book. The only negative is that Kamm has some problems with the English language and this showed in the reading. Kamm escaped Nazi Germany, not France as a previous reviewer has stated. An informative account From Amazon Henry Kamm's book provides a good overall view of events in Cambodia of the last thirty years.
If you are looking for an in depth account of the Khmer Rouge genocide, look elsewhere. Kamm's book covers the events that led up to the Khmer Rouge takeover, covers their brief rule and their attempts to regain power and finally the downfall of Pol Pot. Along the way Kamm describes the tragedy of a poor country trying overcome the horrors inflicted upon it by its own people. A very well written and readable book by an author who knows his subject well.

Aug 28, Richard Sandford rated it really liked it Recommends it for: anyone interested in how Cambodia got to where it is today. Kamm knew Cambodia and its elite while Sihanouk was still a prince, and though there's a lot of historical and political background on Cambodia and the wider area, what really made an impression on me was his anger that such a wonderful place should be so consistently let down by corruption and international complacency.
Not remotely neutral but then should you be neutral about a place like Cambodia? Feb 12, Lisa Rosen rated it liked it. Detailed assessment of Cambodia's troubled history in the 20th century, but ends in Kamm's predictions for the country's future were bleak indeed; I'd love to know what he or someone with his depth of knowledge thinks of the situation now--have things improved?

Cambodia: Report from a Stricken Land by Henry Kamm
Informative about the history of Cambodia from to Author remained sympathetic towards the stricken country and people, while condemned all the parties who played a part in dragging the country down to hell, this includes virtually all the countries involved, all the political factions in Cambodia, even the UN who tried to help but failed miserably. A very good read. But the sentences the author styled could not be easily understood sometimes. Dec 10, Kate S rated it really liked it Shelves: , non-fiction.
Kamm made many trips to Cambodia and appears to be very well informed about the history of the region starting in the s. I found this to be a pretty journalistic report of what happened when and to whom.
