This collection provides a window into the political, social, and economic development of

Cambodia, the rapidly maturing “modern” state in the heart of Southeast Asia. Traced here

is the critical legacy of Prince Norodom Sihanouk (1922-2012), the nation’s controversial and

paradoxical leader. Khmer nationalism, loyalty to themonarch, struggle against injustice and

corruption, and protection of the Buddhist religionwere in the forefront of developments in this

period. The archive is an essential resource for the study of Southeast Asian history and the

U.S. role in the war in Vietnam. The files are arranged according to the classification system

of U.S. State Department Records, and they cover a wide range of internal political affairs.
