Come along for a special conversation event with Gordon Conochie, Professor Gareth Evans (former Australian Foreign Minister) and Dr Thida Kheang (Cambodian researcher), with interlocutor Jewel Topsfield (The Age).
Cambodia’s Hun Sen is the world’s longest-serving prime minister, in power since 1985. In 2013, Sen’s rule came under threat when the exiled opposition leader, Sam Rainsy, unexpectedly returned just before a national election. One hundred thousand supporters hailed him at the airport as protests swept the country. On election day, millions voted for change. A Tiger Rules the Mountain tells the story of that election and the subsequent multi-year wrestle for power, right through to the dramatic events of the present day.
In the lead-up to the Cambodian General Election on 23 July this book is a propulsive and vivid insight into a complex country.
