Summary "This volume, written by a broad mix of Khmer and non-Khmer researchers, is the first study to assess the post-conflict democratization process in Cambodia in a systematic and in-depth empirical way. In going beyond a one-dimensional view of democracy, the full complexity of this process is illuminated. Not only does the volume focus on the successes and failures of Cambodia's political elite but also it looks beyond Cambodia, assessing the extent to which the globally applied post-conflict strategy of intervention followed by early elections - hoping for rapid democratization - is sustainable and progressive."--BOOK JACKET.
