On/About Samdech Techo Hun Sen
Hun Sen: Strongman of Cambodia
Author: Harish C. Mehta and Julie B. Mehta
Publisher: Graham Brash Pte Ltd, Singapore, 1999
This is the first biography of a leader whose private life has until now been a closely guarded secret. But it is much more than an account of the life of Hun Sen –it tells through his eyes the story of the emergence through slaughter of an innocent people. (It is an) essential reading for all those who are intrigued and bewildered by the complex recent history of Cambodia, and by the rapid rise of its new leader from obscurity to strongman status.
- The book reveals, for the first time, the inside story of how Hun Sen escaped Pol Pot’s clutches and defected to Vietnam in 1977; how he was imprisoned and interrogated by the Vietnamese; and how, after their initial refusal to help, he convinced them to assist him in raising and arming a rebel army to liberate Cambodia from the murderous Khmer Rouge.
- The authors’ conversations with Hun Sen, his wife Bun Rany, older brother Hun Neng, and other family members, provide rare glimpses into the private world of the strongman and help explain the evolution of the man. Through a detailed account of his childhood in rural Cambodia, they traced his days as a pagoda boy, his life as a teenaged Khmer Rouge fighter, his rapid rise to battalion commander, and his disillusionment with Pol Pot’s inhuman policy to starve, torture and kill 1.7 million innocent people.
- Through lengthy and sometimes passionate conversations with Hun Sen and his wife, the authors have pieced together the story of their troubled romance during their early years as Khmer Rouge cadres, and how the high command tried to stop their marriage.
