Full Description

John Burgess masterfully brings to life the modern history of Cambodia’s fabled Angkor temples, from their “discovery” by French explorers in the mid-19th century, through to the latter part of the 20th century, when celebrity visitors included a well-publicised one by Jackie Onassis and making Angkor one of the top 3 monuments to visit in the world. An invaluable and riveting book about one of the greatest man-made wonders in the world.
