Summary

Summary

The Cambodia Country Profile, 22nd title in this series, explores the rich cultural heritage of Cambodia, while also showing a nation in rapid change as it prepares to claim its place in the advanced economies of South East Asia. A continuing theme through the book is how Cambodia can balance the demands for social equity and a sustainable civil society with its rapid economic growth.

This profile focuses on campaigns to preserve traditional livelihoods; on efforts to deal with landmines and AIDS-related illness; and initiatives to rebuild trust and to break with the nation's violent past. There are personal testimonies from six Cambodian families whose lives have been shaped by the past thirty years of conflict and disregard for their basic civil rights.
