BROTHER ENEMY – Nayan Chanda Translated by Tep Meng Khean (2007)

This book by the bureau chief for the Far Eastern Economic Review examines the third Indochina War and offers an explanation for the Cambodian genocide. Chanda posits that the Khmer Rouge built their revolution at breakneck speed to prepare for a life-and- death struggle against the Vietnamese, and the means they used to do this was ideological “purification.”
