Dancing in Cambodia - Amitav Ghosh

Slim collection of essays , quite liked it. Had been picked on t's reco.

Recounts his meetings with people in Cambodia, Burma and its neighborhood  Covers some background of  Pol pot, and some of Aung San Su Kyi.

I like the understated cadence of his writing, just the way he puts the facts and his take on them, without making it sound too ponderous or too facile.

Definitely worth a read.
