Cambodian Dancers - Ancient and Modern (Paperback)
George Groslier's artistic vision of Cambodia's ancient dance tradition with the complete contents of his rare 1913 publication. With a Preface by Her Royal Highness Princess Buppha Devi of Cambodia, this deluxe modern edition features more than 250 hand-drawn illustrations and photos, extensive background materials, a bibliography and index. In his Foreword, Dr. Paul Cravath, author of the award-winning Cambodian dance history "Earth in Flower", notes that this is "The first commentary in any language--Asian or European--on one of the world's most refined performing arts." The book also includes the first detailed biography of the author: "Le Khmerophile - The Art and Life of George Groslier". Working with the author's daughter Nicole Groslier and her previously unseen family photo archives, biographer Kent Davis recounts the life of the man who committed his life to serving Cambodia and her people.
