The Story of Angkor

Snapshot 2013-04-04 15-04-38A history of Angkor civilization, published by Silkworm Books, is available from Amazon.com in print or as an e-book.

“While it can be read as a standalone history, any visit to Angkor would be greatly enhanced by having this slim and concise volume to hand…The Story of Angkor is an interesting and somewhat old-fashioned little book, old-fashioned in the pleasant sense that DiBiasio writes well and relies on crafted prose.” – The Asian Review of Books, August 7, 2014

The Classical Angkor period, from its founding in AD802 by Jayavarman II, to its mysterious demise, produced hundreds of temples, reservoirs, and other monuments. The Story of Angkor explains the rise and fall of this remarkable empire through the major monuments and their art.

“No visitor to Angkor, and no one interested in Cambodia, can afford not to read it.” – PJ Coggan, author of the Hotel Cambodia series.
