The Classical Angkor period, from its founding in the ninth century 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 temples and their art. This slim volume is written for busy people who want a better appreciation of the monuments.


“No visitor to Angkor, and no one interested in Cambodia, can afford not to read it.”

PJ Coggan, author of the Hotel Cambodia series.


“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.”
