This fascinating book tells of the events and personalities that shaped Cambodian history during the turbulent period following the overthrow of the Khmer Rouge regime in 1979 and explains how the legacy of this period continues to influence events in Cambodia today. "Evan Gottesman's timely new book ...is a clear-eyed and nuanced account of multilayered backroom efforts to rebuild Cambodia after [Vietnam] overthrew the Khmer Rouge in 1979. The lessons for the United States in Iraq are many...Washington should take note: this book is a sober and valuable warning of how difficult that struggle can be."-Eric Pape, Newsweek "Drawing on new archival sources and interviews, Mr. Gottesman fills a gap, describing a shadowy period in Cambodia's recent history, a period as crucial as the more thoroughly explored Khmer Rouge interregnum."-Michael J. Ybarra, Wall Street Journal
