Kirkus UK
The glorious Khmer empire built not just the famous edifices of Angkor in Cambodia - the archetypal 'city in the jungle' - but also a host of other temples, many in present-day Thailand, between the seventh and 14th centuries. This richly illustrated book is a three-way collaboration between two authorities on the art and architecture of Thailand, Smitthi Siribhadra and Elizabeth Moore; and photographer Michael Freeman. The book combines an authoritative text, written in a clear and illustrated volume which, for the first time, records in detail the major Khmer sites of Thailand and their associated artifacts. Weighing in at just under three kilos, this is not a book to pop in your backpack and lug all the way to Thailand, but one to quietly savour at home. (Kirkus UK)
