It was China, 1977, two years after the reclusive Cambodian had seized power. Short was struck with Pol Pots charm and charisma, his detachment and self-abnegation, which seemed more appropriate to a Buddhist monk than to the leader of a feudal nation-state.

Yet Pol was the architect of one of the most radical and ruthless experiments in social engineering ever undertaken. His egalitarian utopia released a reign of terror whose purpose was nothing less than to obliterate old thoughts and old ideas where necessary - by exterminating all those who held them.

The country descended into madness- in three years one in every five Cambodians - more than a million people - had perished in the killing fields or from hunger. How did it happen? How did an idealistic dream of justice and prosperity mutate into one of humanitys worst nightmares? To answer these and other questions about one of the most terrifying regimes of modern times, the author traveled the length and breadth of Cambodia.
