From the organizer: Join us for the 2nd talk about King Norodom Sihanouk – a major figure in twentieth century history by Dr Jean-Michel Filippi.
NORODOM SIHANOUK , AN EXTRAORDINARY REIGN
To anyone who knew him, Norodom Sihanouk was a source of bewilderment and astonishment: king, prince after he had abdicated, head of the Cambodian state, poet, movie maker, singer, but also an outstanding statesman who put all his talents to the service of his political vision.
This lecture will propose a global understanding of the man and his political actions inside the troubled times of twentieth century Cambodian history.
