K ING Norodom Sihanouk is about to release a book on his Sangkum Reastr Niyum regime
of the 1950s and 1960s.
The Sangkum Reastr Niyum Album #6 , focussing on "urbanism, tourism, artistry,
mutiple beauties of Cambodia", will go on sale late this month or early November.
In a letter to Prince Norodom Sirivudh, made public to help publicize the publication,
the King said the album was "voluminous and particularly attractive", with
many color photos.
Five thousand copies had been printed, at a cost to the King of $66,900, and would
be sold without profit for about $13.50 each.
The King wrote that the album would be of interest to Khmers and foreigners, certain
political parties and ministries.
