An extraordinary and brilliant book ... Like a clever and determined detective, Short has exposed the secrets, knitting together a story which it once seemed would never be told. The result is horrifying, but it must be read. (Scotland on Sunday)

A superb, chilling, yet human portrait of a monster (Simon Sebag Montefiore, Daily Telegraph)

A model of research ... an intelligent and compassionate account of the Cambodian nightmare (Spectator)

His weighty book, which is as much a history of modern Cambodia as a biography of the man who shaped it, [is written with] with great discretion and sensitivity ... As well as a model of research, this is an intelligent and compassionate account of the Cambodian nightmare. (The Spectator)

'The first full biography of the man who led Cambodia into darkness.' - Sue Baker (Publishing News)

Brings clear thinking to the big questions of blame (Sunday Times)

Short succeeds in building a complete, compelling portrait of the man (Herald)

Comprehensive and eloquent biography of a monster (Literary Review)

Short unerringly broadens the inquiry to the point where serious history begins, and serious judgements can be made (Financial Times)

Short's brilliantly detailed account is a salutary one (Sunday Herald)

Riveting (Scotsman)

Philip Short has done a spectacularly efficient job of describing what happened, and how (Economist)

Exhaustive and authoritative (Times Literary Supplement)

The result is a searching account (Sunday Times)
