    Cambodia's Curse
    Cambodia's Curse
    The Modern History of a Troubled Land
    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.
