Human Relations Area Files • New Haven • Published In 1953 • Pages:
AbstractThis source contains a part of the first volume of a three-volume work by Aymonier, 'Le Cambodge,' that is mainly concerned with the ancient Khmer culture and its monuments. It is considered a standard work but has been outdated by the later work of Lawrence P. Briggs. The text included here contains general descriptive information about Cambodia and it inhabitants during the late nineteenth century. The introduction includes information about the author and a general survey of the literature concerning Cambodia up to the year 1900. The chapters describe the geography; the people, their racial composition and number, their customs, religion, arts, and social classes; the kingdom, its organization, the king and his household, the royal classes; the law codes; the judicial organization; and slavery.
