Despite his modest rural background, Keat Chhon had an extraordinary life. Nuclear and Marine Engineer, senior civil servant, minister, Minister of State, and finally Vice-Prime Minister of a dozen of governments, he lived through numerous events and conflicts: the crumbling of the French protectorate, the revolutionary dictatorship of Pol Pot… Marked by success, commitments and exiles, his life will enable the reader to enter the recent history of Cambodia.
