A generation after the fall of the Khmer Rouge, Cambodia shows every sign of having overcome its devastating history—but under this façade lies a country still haunted by years of terror. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Joel Brinkley, author of Cambodia’s Curse, offers a sobering assessment of the country and its democratically-elected government: starving poor who have lost their land, a baseline attitude of “nothing could be as bad as the Khmer Rouge,” and widespread PTSD. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with University Book Store. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust and the RealNetworks Foundation.
