Overview
After the Khmer Rouge embarked on a revolution in 1975 that brought unprecedented terror and destruction to Cambodia, Elizabeth Becker, who covered the country for The Washington Post, was one of two American journalists allowed to return. When her visit ended with the murder of a fellow Western observer, Becker resolved to tell what happened after the revolution. In this powerful and authoritative account -- often told in the words of those who miraculously escaped -- Becker captures the essence of a nightmare: a capital city emptied, with everyone sent to the fields; the intelligentsia of the old society systematically hunted clown and often killed; scant food, poor shelter, and no relief from punishing work; a population ruled by terror; and routine torture and death.
