My dear Kacvey,

Here are 2 books that were published 46 years apart:

La Monocratie” (which deals with “La Monarchie cambodgienne” by Yvonne Bongert published in 1970 by Editions de la Librairie Encyclopédique, Bruxelles, Belgique. livre-1970; and

Cambodia’s Second Kingdom – Nation, Imagination, and Democracy” by Astrid Norén-Nilsson published in 2016 by Cornell Southeast Asia Program Publications, Ithaca, New York, USA. livre-2016

How things have changed in and within 46 years! And how tumultuous and tragic Cambodia has gone through! Kacvey, how many of your friends have lived or have not lived through?

Please do remind your students not to neglect their importance.
