9789996372742: The Angkor Guidebook: Your Essential Companion to the Temples

Designed specifically for the first-time visitor to Angkor, this definitive guide will bring the Angkor temples to life with 19 artistic recreations to show what these ruined temples would have looked like in their heyday, reflecting as closely as possible the latest academic research. Who hasn't wandered ancient ruins and tried to imagine how these sites would have looked in their heyday? Rather than offering a laundry list of dates and kings with unpronounceable names, this guidebook goes one step further, exploring the people, and culture, and lifestyles of this medieval civilization, bringing the subject matter to life before you eyes. The guide is concise, accessible-a perfect companion for the mainstream Angkor explorer. Its small and lightweight harcover design will comfortably accompany you on all of your temple excursions. In addition, a full-sized, 34x23cm fold-out map has been included for easy reference. Given the physical dimensions of a guidebook the editors' greatest challenge on this vast subject was what to leave out. The descriptions are accurate, reflecting the very latest academic findings and opinions. Dr. Damian Evans of the University of Sydney and a founding member of the Greater Angkor Project led the technical editing. That the text is interesting and accessible for the non-specialist is thanks largely to Cynthia Rosenfeld's editing prowess. As a leading travel writer she specializes in making intelligible and concise the ramblings of others. The book was conceived by Andrew Booth, resident of Siem Reap and leading travel specialist to Cambodia, specifically to accompany the first-time visitor to Angkor who typically spends two or three days exploring the temples of the archaeological park. Profits from sale of the book benefit ABOUTAsia Schools.
