Inspired by the groundbreaking work of David Chandler on Cambodian attempts to find order in the aftermath of turmoil, these essays explore Cambodian history using a rich variety of sources that cast light on Khmer perceptions of violence, wildness, and order, the "forest" and cultured space, and the fraught "edge" where they meet. Taken together, the essays offer a post-colonial analysis of Cambodia's emergence from genocide that explores the relationship between narrative, history, and perplexing problems of meaning.
