I Am Pol Pot also available as E-book

This fictional biography of Pol Pot is now available for $8.99 as an E-book.  Just click on that price and get I Am Pol Pot for almost half the price of a regular book to down load where ever it’s convenient.
This book contains actual quotes from The Black Book, one of the few documents the Communist Party of Kampuchea ever released to the public. It also contains real slogans adopted by the CPK.
The 1970s brought us the turbulence of the Vietnam War and its protest by students and youth who where un-willing to fight for a cause that seemed un-winnable and useless. When President Richard Nixon spread the Vietnam War to Kampuchea, called Cambodia today, he not only caused outrage and protest at home, including the Kent State Ohio massacres, but he also threw Kampuchea into a state of civil war. His inept handling of the situation brought about one of the strangest social experiment of the 20th Century. Pol Pot ruled through a committee known for the first year only as the Ankar (organization). His name was not even spoken to the Kampuchean people for two years. His Communist Party of Kampuchea had amassed a powerful movement of disenfranchised peasants, who were loyal to him and his regime. The Residence of Phnom Penh, the city's capital, were not so lucky. They were treated with suspicion. And punishment for those deemed "un-redeemable" was harsh, usually death.
