This book contributes to the ongoing debate on the complex transition in weak states from war to peace and from authoritarianism to liberal democracy. The analysis assesses the impact of foreign intervention on Cambodia's state and societal structures.
Three forms of intervention are discussed: competitive, cooperative, and co-optative. While competitive intervention perpetuated hegemonic instability, cooperative and co-optative intervention seemed to lead Cambodia in the direction of illiberal democracy, in which greater hegemonic stability exists and may persist for some time.
