Cambodias turbulent transition towards political stability and a free-market economy after a history of genocide, civil war and foreign occupation has been significantly influenced by an extraordinary growth in international tourism. With theMoreCambodias turbulent transition towards political stability and a free-market economy after a history of genocide, civil war and foreign occupation has been significantly influenced by an extraordinary growth in international tourism.

With the countrys social and physical infrastructures largely destroyed, tourism has unsurprisingly centred on what is widely regarded as Southeast Asias premier cultural landscape: Angkor. Since becoming a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Angkor has been dominated by the paradoxical and unstable convergence of two intense agendas: heritage conservation and tourism development. Weaving together a political analysis of heritage policies with an understanding of tourism as a series of intersecting cultural economies, this book explores a decade of world heritage and tourism in Angkor.

In so doing, it provides unique insights into how processes of post-conflict reconstruction, globalization and postcolonial relations are played out in a country like Cambodia.- To fully appreciate the tensions and contradictions surrounding tourism and heritage today, it addresses areas such as identity politics, paradoxical social transformations and cultures of neo-colonialism. By revealing how formations of culture and memory, place and landscape, have become entwined within a network of historically fashioned social, economic and political relations, the book advances academic understandings of heritage and tourism and what role they play in countries like Cambodia.
