Phnom Penh Then and Now

£14.99

Product description

Phnom Penh Then and Now is the most comprehensive book on the history of the capital of Cambodia. It brings together 293 photographs, including numerous unpublished plates from the period 1863 to 1931, and a large number of old maps and drawings unknown until now. A comparison of the aerial views of Phnom Penh in 1931 and in 1993 reveals the astonishing transformation of the city, especially in the former colonial quarter. The author, a specialist on Cambodia, evokes the former canals and bridges throughout the town, and the cayman hunts around the lake where the Grand Market is situated today. He defines the main stages in the urbanisation of the city, from its foundation in the fifteenth century and its rebirth in the reign of King Norodom, to the modern capital which developed after independence and the changes which followed in the years from 1975 to 1993. These fascinating photographic images reveal that Phnom Penh has always been the most open-minded and cosmopolitan city in South-east Asia.

Minor foxing/tanning on some pages. Wear/markings to cover. Inscription at front. Signed by author Michel Igout.
