A generation after Pol Pot's regime killed one quarter of the nation's population, Cambodia shows every outward sign of having overcome its devastating history - the streets of Phnom Penh are paved; skyscrapers dot the skyline. But behind this fa ade lies a country still haunted by its years of terror. In 2008 and 2009, Joel Brinkley - who won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting on the fall of the Khmer Rouge - returned to Cambodia. He discovered a population in the grip of a venal government. He learned that between one third and one half of Cambodians who lived through the Khmer Rouge era suffer from post - traumatic stress disorder, and that its afflictions are being passed to the next generation. His extensive close - up reporting in Cambodia's Curse illuminates the country, its people, and the deep historical roots of its modern - day behaviour. This is a devastating and important look at Cambodia today.

How to address the human rights violations of previous regimes and past periods of conflict is one of the most pressing questions facing governments and policy makers today. New democracies and states in the fragile post-conflict peace-settlement phase are confronted by the need to make crucial decisions about whether to hold perpetrators of human rights violations accountable for their actions and, if so, how to best achieve that end. This is the first book to examine the ways in which states and societies in the Asia-Pacific region have navigated these difficult waters. Drawing together several of the world's leading experts on transitional justice with Asia-Pacific regional and country specialists it provides an overview of the processes and practices of transitional justice in the region as well as detailed analysis of the cases of Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Aceh, Indonesia, South Korea, the Solomon Islands and East Timor.

Mention Cambodia and to many people it is forever associated with poverty, war, and the genocidal reign of the brutal Khmer Rouge. These are not the images that everyone holds of this Southeast Asian nation. The poverty still exists but war has been replaced by a new word - hope. As peace is embraced after decades of conflict, Cambodia's shattered economy is stirring itself into life, encouraged by foreign aid and its own brand of entrepreneurial flair. Its culture is experiencing revival and change, caught between traditions of the past and modern-day Western influences. Remembering Cambodiais a record of a country coming to terms with its past and looking forward to the future. It is a tribute to the men, women, and children of Cambodia by showing a dramatic glimpse into their ongoing struggle for survival through vibrant colorful photographs of their ordinary daily life.

This book explores the tensions within Cambodia’s foreign policy between a tight alignment with China, on the one hand, and Cambodia’s commitment to the Association of the Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) as well as its delicate foreign policy diversification towards other major powers, on the other hand. It traces the long history of Cambodia’s quest for survival from its bigger and historically antagonistic neighbours – the Thai and the Vietnamese – and its struggle for security and independence from the two neighbours and external major powers, particularly the United States and China. It discusses Cambodia’s geopolitical predicaments deriving from its location of being sandwiched between powerful neighbours and limited strategic options available for the Kingdom. The book also assesses recent developments in Cambodia’s relations with its neighbours and their implications for Cambodia’s increasingly tight alignment with China in recent years. It considers the extent to which the ruling regime in Cambodia depends on strong relations with China for its legitimacy and survival and argues that there are risks and danger for Cambodia in moving towards an increasingly tight alignment with China.

Colonialism, the Irish potato famine, slavery, the treatment of aboriginal people - politicians are under increasing pressure to apologise for Britain's history. Collective grief is becoming the basis of public policy. Jeremy Black - one of the UK's leading historians - argues that this is a dangerous development. There is a politics of grievance that runs through the polemical use of history around the world. Drawing on examples from the UK, USA, Eastern Europe, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand, The Curse of History illustrates why this is dangerous: politically it splits communities rather than drawing them together, while historically it leads to distorted and monolithic interpretations. The Curse of History is a devastating critique of the political abuse of history.

Islam and Tolerance in Wider Europe offers a refreshing new look at the complex interplay between religion, nationalism and expansionism in an increasingly globalized world, as revealed by a new generation of open society leaders working to build a more tolerant Europe. Each chapter — focusing on Western Europe, the Caucasus, Russia, Turkey, Central Europe, and the Balkans — includes several essays by authors involved in the dynamic policymaking processes transforming their countries. The authors have not only spent many years conducting field research investigating the issues presented, but have also participated actively in the democratization of their own transition' societies. Their policy perspectives benefit from a uniquely inside out' rather than the usual outside in' orientation found in most English-language information about their communities. Taken as a whole, the compilation offers insightful insider stories and comparisons across countries and regions. The results are illuminating.
