Item description for Remembering Cambodia (Travel) by Stefan Smith...
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 The poverty still exists but war has been replaced by a new word -- hope.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 a revival and change, caught between traditions of the past and modern-day Western influences.
Remembering Cambodia is a record of a country coming to terms with its past and looking forward to the future. It is a dramatic glimpse into their ongoing struggle for survival through vibrant colorful photographs of their ordinary daily life.
