There is still time to buy I Am Pol Pot (ប៉ុល ពត) for a holiday gift

I Am Pol Pot (ប៉ុល ពត) is a great gift for those who like recent history. This book allows the reader to go into the mind of Pol Pot and see events as he may have seen them.

Few dictators have the terrible reputation as Pol Pot the leader of Democratic Kampuchea (present day Cambodia). But “I Am Pol Pot” by Steve Otto is a serious attempt to look inside the circle of the rulers of Democratic Kampuchea. The entire world realizes that his government was a failure. But this book gives the reader a chance to see what the Communist Party of Kampuchea thought they were doing and how they believed they could create the most advanced communist society in the modern world back in the 1970s.

Eight of nine people, who bought this book from Barns & Noble, gave it five stars, while the other one gave it four stars. This book is among the best for understanding the Pol Pot years.

Barns& Noble offer this book in e-book form, while Amazon offers it in paperback.

For anyone interested in the history of Cambodia, this book is a must.
