Business Services. They share a very similar culture, with matrilineal descent. In the Brao population in Laos was estimated at about 9, In it was reported that the total Brao population was between 10, and 15, About 3, Brao reportedly moved into Cambodia from Laos in the s.

The Brao live in large villages centered on a communal house. They cultivate dry-rice and produce some pottery.

They appear to have a bilateral kinship system. The Tampuan number about 25,, according to a census.

They have a Mon—Khmer language, and practice a form of animism. They have matrilineal descent. The Tampuan live in the northeastern province of Cambodia, Ratanakiri.

Many Tampuan live in villages close to Ratanakiri's provincial capital, Ban Lung , around a volcanic crater lake, Yeak Laom. Some live in scattered communities around the small town of Voeun Sai.

A total of 23, Bunong were thought to be living in Cambodia and in Vietnam in the early s. The Bunong practice dry-rice farming, and some also cultivate a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and other useful plants as secondary crops.

Some subgroups weave cloth. At least two of the Bunong subgroups have matrilineal descent. Monogamy is the predominant form of marriage, and residence is usually matrilocal.

Wealth distinctions are measured by the number of buffalo that a notable person sacrifices on a funereal or ceremonial occasion as a mark of status and as a means of eliciting social approval.

Slavery is known to have existed in the past, but the system allowed a slave to gain freedom. The Stieng are closely related to the Bunong.

Both groups straddle the Cambodian-Vietnamese border, and their languages belong to the same subfamily of Mon—Khmer.

In the Cambodian Stieng numbered about 20, in all. The Stieng cultivate dry-field rice. Their society is apparently patriarchal, and residence after marriage is patrilocal if a bride-price was paid.

The groups have a very loose political organization; each village has its own leaders and tribunals. Several small groups, perhaps totalling no more than 10, people in Cambodia and eastern Thailand, make up the Pearic group.

The main members are the Pear in Battambang , Pursat , and Kampong Thom provinces; the Chong in Thailand and Battambang Province; the Saoch in Kampot Province ; the Samre in what was formerly Siem Reap Province ; and the Suoi in Kampong Chhnang Province.

Some believe that this group constitutes the remnant of the pre-Khmer population of Cambodia. Many members of the Pearic group grow dry-field rice, which they supplement by hunting and by gathering.

Trials began on 17 February In , the Khmer Rouge officially launched a national insurgency across Cambodia. Though North Vietnam had not been informed of this decision, its forces provided shelter and weapons to the Khmer Rouge after the insurgency started.

North Vietnamese support for the Khmer Rouge's insurgency made it impossible for the Cambodian military to effectively counter it.

For the next two years, the insurgency grew because Norodom Sihanouk did very little to stop it. As the insurgency grew stronger, the party finally openly declared itself to be the Communist Party of Kampuchea.

Sihanouk was removed as head of state in Premier Lon Nol deposed him with the support of the National Assembly , establishing the pro-United States Khmer Republic.

On the Chinese Communist Party CCP 's advice, Sihanouk, in exile in Beijing , made an alliance with the Khmer Rouge, and became the nominal head of a Khmer Rouge—dominated government-in-exile known by its French acronym, GRUNK backed by China.

Although thoroughly aware of the weakness of Lon Nol's forces and loath to commit American military force to the new conflict in any form other than air power, the Nixon administration announced its support for the new Khmer Republic.

On 29 March , North Vietnam launched an offensive against the Cambodian army. Documents uncovered from the Soviet Union 's archives reveal that the invasion was launched at the Khmer Rouge's explicit request after negotiations were held with Nuon Chea.

By June, three months after Sihanouk's removal, they had swept government forces from the entire northeastern third of the country.

After defeating those forces, the North Vietnamese turned the newly won territories over to the local insurgents. The Khmer Rouge also established "liberated" areas in the south and the southwestern parts of the country, where they operated independently of the North Vietnamese.

After Sihanouk showed his support for the Khmer Rouge by visiting them in the field, their ranks swelled from 6, to 50, fighters. Many of the new recruits were apolitical peasants who fought in support of the king, not for communism, of which they had little understanding.

By , with Lon Nol's government running out of ammunition and having lost U. On 17 April , the Khmer Rouge captured Phnom Penh and ended the civil war.

From to a massive United States bombing campaign against the Khmer Rouge devastated rural Cambodia. The number of Cambodian civilian and Khmer Rouge deaths caused by U.

Paige Johnson described , war deaths as "the highest mortality that we can justify"; [44] and Patrick Heuveline states that "Subsequent reevaluations of the demographic data situated the death toll for the [civil war] in the order of , or less".

The relationship between the United States' massive bombing of Cambodia and the growth of the Khmer Rouge in recruitment and popular support has been a matter of interest to historians.

Some scholars, including Michael Ignatieff , Adam Jones [46] and Greg Grandin , [47] have cited the United States intervention and bombing campaign from to as a significant factor that led to increased support for the Khmer Rouge among the Cambodian peasantry.

It used the bombing's devastation and massacre of civilians as recruitment propaganda and as an excuse for its brutal, radical policies and its purge of moderate communists and Sihanoukists.

Chandler writes that the bombing "had the effect the Americans wanted—it broke the Communist encirclement of Phnom Penh", but also accelerated the collapse of rural society and increased social polarization.

Since the s, Pol Pot had made frequent visits to the People's Republic of China , receiving political and military training—especially on the theory of Dictatorship of the proletariat —from the personnel of the CCP.

In , Lon Nol overthrew Sihanouk, and the latter fled to Beijing, where Pol Pot was also visiting. On the advice of CCP, Khmer Rouge changed its position to support Sihanouk, establishing the National United Front of Kampuchea.

In alone, the Chinese reportedly gave the United Front tons of military aid. We agree with you! Much of your experience is better than ours.

China is not qualified to criticize you. We committed errors of the political routes for ten times in fifty years—some are national, some are local…Thus I say China has no qualification to criticize you but have to applaud you.

You are basically correct…During the transition from the democratic revolution to adopting a socialist path, there exist two possibilities: one is socialism, the other is capitalism.

Our situation now is like this. Fifty years from now, or one hundred years from now, the struggle between two lines will exist. Even ten thousand years from now, the struggle between two lines will still exist.

When Communism is realized, the struggle between two lines will still be there. Otherwise, you are not a Marxist Our state now is, as Lenin said, a capitalist state without capitalists.

This states protects capitalist rights, and the wages are not equal. Under the slogan of equality, a system of inequality has been introduced. There will exist a struggle between two lines, the struggle between the advanced and the backward, even when Communism is realized.

Today we cannot explain it completely. Pol Pot replied: [54]. The issue of lines of struggle raised by Chairman Mao is an important strategic issue.

We will follow your words in the future. I have read and learned various works of Chairman Mao since I was young, especially the theory on people's war.

Your works have guided our entire party. On the other hand, during another meeting in August , Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai warned Sihanouk as well as Khmer Rouge leaders including Khieu Samphan and Ieng Sary of the danger of radical movement towards communism, citing the mistakes in China's own Great Leap Forward.

During the genocide, China was the Khmer Rouge's main international patron, supplying "more than 15, military advisers" and most of its external aid.

After Mao's death in September , China went through around two years of transition until Deng Xiaoping became the new paramount leader in December Chen Yonggui , Vice Premier of China and the leader of Dazhai, visited Cambodia in December , commending the achievement of its movement towards communism.

In , Son Sen , a Khmer Rouge leader and the Minister of National Defense of Democratic Kampuchea , visited China and obtained its approval for military aid.

Soon after Deng became the Paramount Leader of China , the Vietnamese invaded Cambodia and ended the genocide by defeating the Khmer Rouge in January In order to counter the power of Soviet Union and Vietnam in Southeast Asia , China officially condemned the Vietnamese invasion and continued its material support to Democratic Kampuchea.

In early , China launched an invasion of Vietnam to retaliate against Vietnam's invasion of Cambodia. However, Deng was convinced by a conversation with Singapore prime minister Lee Kuan Yew to limit the scale and duration of the war; following the one-month war, Singapore attempted to serve as a mediator between Vietnam and China on the Cambodian issue.

As a result of Chinese and Western opposition to the Vietnamese invasion of and , the Khmer Rouge continued to hold Cambodia's United Nations UN seat until , after which the seat was filled by a Khmer Rouge-dominated coalition known as the Coalition Government of Democratic Kampuchea CGDK.

Ideology played an important role in the genocide. Pol Pot was influenced by Marxism-Leninism, and wanted an entirely self-sufficient agrarian society that would be free of foreign influence.

Stalin's work has been described as a "crucial formative influence" on his thought. Also heavily influential was Mao's work, particularly On New Democracy.

In the mids, Pol Pot reformulated his ideas about Marxism-Leninism to suit the Cambodian situation with goals such as: bringing Cambodia back to its "mythic past" of the powerful Khmer Empire ; eradicating corrupting influences, such as foreign aid and western culture; and restoration of an agrarian society.

Pol Pot's strong belief in an agrarian utopia stemmed from his experience in Cambodia's rural northeast, where—while the Khmer Rouge gained power—he developed an affinity for the agrarian self-sufficiency of the area's isolated tribes.

The Khmer Rouge forced virtually Cambodia's entire population into mobile work teams. Kenneth M. Quinn about the "origins of the radical Pol Pot regime" [83] is "widely acknowledged as the first person to report on the genocidal policies of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge".

State Department in Southeast Asia, Dr. Quinn was stationed at the South Vietnamese border for nine months between — Quinn "interviewed countless Cambodian refugees who had escaped the brutal clutches of the Khmer Rouge".

Quinn "wrote a page report about it, which was submitted throughout the U. Quinn has written of the Khmer Rouge: "[w]hat emerges as the explanation for the terror and violence that swept Cambodia during the s is that a small group of alienated intellectuals, enraged by their perception of a totally corrupt society and imbued with a Maoist plan to create a pure socialist order in the shortest possible time, recruited extremely young, poor, and envious cadres, instructed them in harsh and brutal methods learned from Stalinist mentors, and used them to destroy physically the cultural underpinnings of the Khmer civilization and to impose a new society through purges, executions, and violence".

Ben Kiernan has compared the Cambodian genocide to the Armenian Genocide perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire during The First World War and the Holocaust perpetrated by Nazi Germany during The Second World War.

While each was unique, they shared certain common features. Racism was a major part of the ideology of all three regimes.

All three targeted religious minorities and tried to use force to expand into what they believed to be their historical heartlands the Khmer Empire , Turkestan , and Lebensraum respectively , and all three "idealized their ethnic peasantry as the true 'national' class, the ethnic soil from which the new state grew.

The Khmer Rouge regime frequently arrested and often executed anyone suspected of connections with the former Cambodian government or foreign governments, as well as professionals, intellectuals, the Buddhist monkhood , and ethnic minorities.

Even those who were stereotypically thought of as having intellectual qualities, such as wearing glasses or speaking multiple languages, were executed for fear that they would rebel against the Khmer Rouge.

Ethnic Vietnamese , ethnic Thai , ethnic Chinese , ethnic Cham , Cambodian Christians , and other minorities were also targeted. The Khmer Rouge forcibly relocated minority groups and banned their languages.

While Cambodians in general were victims of the Khmer Rouge regime, the persecution, torture, and killings committed by the Khmer Rouge are considered an act of genocide according to the United Nations as ethnic and religious minorities were systematically targeted by Pol Pot and his regime.

Scholars and historians have varying opinions on whether the persecution and killings under the hands of the Khmer Rouge should be considered genocide.

This is because the earlier scholarship which came about right after the fall of the Khmer Rouge regime in had claimed that the victims could have been killed due to the circumstances they were in.

For instance, Michael Vickery opined that the killings were "largely the result of the spontaneous excesses of a vengeful, undisciplined peasant army.

Vickery — erroneously, as maintained by the more recent scholarship of Ben Kiernan — argued that the number of Cham victims during the Khmer Rouge regime to be around 20, [99] which would rule out the crime of genocide against Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge.

The killings were a centralized and bureaucratic effort by the Khmer Rouge regime, as recently documented by the Documentation Center of Cambodia DC-Cam through the discovery of Khmer Rouge internal security documents which instructed the killings across Cambodia.

David Chandler has argued that, although ethnic minorities fell victim to the Khmer Rouge regime, they were not targeted specifically because of their ethnic backgrounds, but rather because they were mostly enemies of the revolution.

This indicates that Chandler does not believe in the argument of charging the Khmer Rouge regime with the crime of genocide.

Ben Kiernan makes the argument that it was indeed a genocide and disagrees with these three scholars, by bringing forth examples from the history of the Cham people in Cambodia, as did an international tribunal finding Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan guilty 92 and 87 counts of said crime respectively.

The Khmer Rouge initially ordered the expulsion of ethnic Vietnamese from Cambodia but then conducted large scale massacres of large numbers of Vietnamese civilians who were being deported out of Cambodia.

Radio Phnom Penh called on Cambodians to "exterminate the 50 million Vietnamese. Additionally, the Khmer Rouge conducted many cross-border raids into Vietnam where they slaughtered an estimated 30, Vietnamese civilians.

This forced an urgent response from the Vietnamese government, precipitating the Cambodian—Vietnamese War in which the Khmer Rouge was ultimately defeated.

The state of the Chinese Cambodians during the Khmer Rouge regime was alleged to be "the worst disaster ever to befall any ethnic Chinese community in Southeast Asia.

According to Ben Kiernan, the "fiercest extermination campaign was directed against the ethnic Chams , Cambodia's Muslim minority.

Initially, the Khmer Rouge aimed for the " forced assimilation " of Chams through population dispersal. Pol Pot then began using intimidation efforts against the Chams that included the assassination of village elders but he ultimately ordered the full-scale mass killing of the Cham people.

American professor Samuel Totten and Australian professor Paul R. Bartrop estimate that these efforts would have completely wiped out the Cham population were it not for the overthrow of the Khmer Rouge in He then returned home to the Eastern Zone in and joined the Communist Party of Kampuchea CPK , and co-established the Eastern Zone Islamic Movement with his son, Mat Ly.

Together, they became the mouthpiece of the CPK to get the Cham people to take part in the revolution. The Chams were gradually made to abandon their faith and distinct practices as early as in the Southwest.

Ten Cham villages were taken over by the CPK in —73, where new Cham leaders were instated and led the villagers to work in the fields away from their hometowns.

The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. Today, it is one of the most important pilgrimage site for the Buddhists in Cambodia and around the world.

Angkor Wat combines two basic plans of Khmer temple architecture: the temple-mountain and the later galleried temple. At the centre of the temple stands a quincunx of towers.

Unlike most Angkorian temples, Angkor Wat is oriented to the west; scholars are divided as to the significance of this. The temple is admired for the grandeur and harmony of the architecture, its extensive bas-reliefs , and for the numerous statues of Buddhas and Devas adorning its walls.

Angkor Wat lies 5. In an area of Cambodia where there is an essential group of ancient structures, it is the southernmost of Angkor's main sites.

According to a myth, the construction of Angkor Wat was ordered by Indra to serve as a palace for his son Precha Ket Mealea.

The initial design and construction of the temple took place in the first half of the 12th century, during the reign of Suryavarman II ruled — c.

Breaking from the Shaiva tradition of previous kings, Angkor Wat was instead dedicated to Vishnu. It was built as the king's state temple and capital city.

As neither the foundation stela nor any contemporary inscriptions referring to the temple have been found, its original name is unknown, but it may have been known as "Varah Vishnu-lok" after the presiding deity.

Work seems to have ended shortly after the king's death, leaving some of the bas-relief decoration unfinished.

In , approximately 27 years after the death of Suryavarman II, Angkor was sacked by the Chams , the traditional enemies of the Khmer.

Therefore, Angkor Wat was also gradually converted into a Buddhist site and many Hindu sculptures were replaced by Buddhist Art.

Towards the end of the 12th century, Angkor Wat gradually transformed from a Hindu centre of worship to Buddhism , which continues to the present day.

It has towers and decoration and all the refinements which the human genius can conceive of. In , the temple was effectively rediscovered by the French naturalist and explorer Henri Mouhot , who popularised the site in the West through the publication of travel notes, in which he wrote:.

One of these temples, a rival to that of Solomon , and erected by some ancient Michelangelo , might take an honorable place beside our most beautiful buildings.

It is grander than anything left to us by Greece or Rome , and presents a sad contrast to the state of barbarism in which the nation is now plunged.

The splendid artistic legacy of Angkor Wat and other Khmer monuments in the Angkor region led directly to France adopting Cambodia as a protectorate on 11 August and invading Siam to take control of the ruins.

This quickly led to Cambodia reclaiming lands in the northwestern corner of the country that had been under Siamese Thai control since AD Manich Jumsai , or by some accounts, AD There were no ordinary dwellings or houses or other signs of settlement, including cooking utensils, weapons, or items of clothing usually found at ancient sites.

Instead, there is only evidence of the monuments themselves. Subsequent missions copied inscriptions written on Angkor buildings so scholars might translate them and learn something of Angkor's history.

By they had worked up a chronology of the rulers and developed the outlines of a description of the civilization that had produced the temple complex.

In the French decided to commit substantial funds to Angkor's preservation. Centuries of neglect had permitted the jungle to recapture many of the more significant structures, and unless efforts were made to free the buildings from the embrace of huge banyan and silk-cotton trees, they might soon be crushed to destruction.

The 20th century saw a considerable restoration of Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat caught the attention and imagination of wider audience in Europe when the pavilion of French protectorate of Cambodia , as part of French Indochina , recreated the life-size replica of Angkor Wat during Paris Colonial Exposition in Cambodia gained independence from France on 9 November and has controlled Angkor Wat since that time.

It is safe to say that from the colonial period onwards until the site's nomination as UNESCO World Heritage in , this specific temple of Angkor Wat was instrumental in the formation of the modern and gradually globalised concept of built cultural heritage.

Restoration work was interrupted by the Cambodian Civil War and Khmer Rouge control of the country during the s and s, but relatively little damage was done during this period.

Camping Khmer Rouge forces used whatever wood remained in the building structures for firewood, and a shoot-out between Khmer Rouge and Vietnamese forces put a few bullet holes in a bas relief.

Far more damage was done after the wars, by art thieves working out of Thailand, which, in the late s and early s, claimed almost every head that could be lopped off the structures, including reconstructions.

The temple is a powerful symbol of Cambodia, and is a source of great national pride that has factored into Cambodia's diplomatic relations with France, the United States, and its neighbour Thailand.

A depiction of Angkor Wat has been a part of Cambodian national flags since the introduction of the first version circa In December , it was announced that a research team from University of Sydney had found a previously unseen ensemble of buried towers built and demolished during the construction of Angkor Wat, as well as a massive structure of unknown purpose on its south side and wooden fortifications.

The findings also include evidence of low-density residential occupation in the region, with a road grid, ponds, and mounds.

These indicate that the temple precinct, bounded by moat and wall, may not have been used exclusively by the priestly elite, as was previously thought.

The team used LiDAR , ground-penetrating radar and targeted excavation to map Angkor Wat. The construction of Angkor Wat also suggests that there was a celestial significance with certain features of the temple.

This is observed in the temple's east—west orientation, and lines of sight from terraces within the temple that show specific towers to be at the precise location of the sunrise on a solstice.

Unlike most Khmer temples, Angkor Wat is oriented to the west rather than the east. Rituals take place in reverse order during Brahminic funeral services.

Drawing on the temple's alignment and dimensions, and on the content and arrangement of the bas-reliefs, researcher Eleanor Mannikka argues that the structure represents a claimed new era of peace under King Suryavarman II : "as the measurements of solar and lunar time cycles were built into the sacred space of Angkor Wat, this divine mandate to rule was anchored to consecrated chambers and corridors meant to perpetuate the king's power and to honour and placate the deities manifest in the heavens above.

The Angkor Wat temple's main tower aligns to the morning sun of the Spring Equinox. Angkor Wat is the prime example of the classical style of Khmer architecture —the Angkor Wat style—to which it has given its name.

By the 12th century Khmer architects had become skilled and confident in the use of sandstone rather than brick or laterite as the main building material.

Most of the visible areas are of sandstone blocks, while laterite was used for the outer wall and for hidden structural parts.

The binding agent used to join the blocks is yet to be identified, although natural resins or slaked lime has been suggested. The temple has drawn praise above all for the harmony of its design.

According to Maurice Glaize, a midth-century conservator of Angkor, the temple "attains a classic perfection by the restrained monumentality of its finely balanced elements and the precise arrangement of its proportions.

It is a work of power, unity, and style. Architecturally, the elements characteristic of the style include: the ogival , redented towers shaped like lotus buds; half- galleries to broaden passageways; axial galleries connecting enclosures; and the cruciform terraces which appear along the main axis of the temple.

Typical decorative elements are devatas or apsaras , bas-reliefs , and on pediments extensive garlands and narrative scenes.
