This book provides a concise yet comprehensive study of Angkor from its prehistoric origins to the 19th century. Michael Coe uses up-to-date archaeological research to trace the history of the Khmer people and their culture and society, as well as thier language, the rise of the early kingdoms, the classic period of Khmer history and its eventual decline.
