The authors address the issue of human rights violations during the regime of Pol Pot and the legitimacy of the Vietnamese role in overthrowing that regime. Other main concerns of the authors are the questions of refugees, external opposition movements, intervention by the superpowers and the attempt to rebuild the agricultural and industrial infrastructure devastated during the Pol Pot era.
