Book Synopsis
Preface
Angkor was the ancient capitol city of the great Khmer civilization from the IXth to XVIth Century. It covered over 200 square kilometers on alluvial fans of the Kulen Plateau and the alluvial plains bordering the great lake, Tongle Sap. On these lands, the Khmers tested seven different sites in succession before intensively developing Angkor. Here, over 200 major monuments in brick, laterite and sandstone testify to the art, religion and cultural achievements of the Khmer Civilization.
The sustainabity of Angkor will be described and evaluated against five basic tenets of Ecology:

All things are related
Organisms will seek and inhabit environments which will sustain life and productivity
Organisms will modify their habitat to increase rates of survival and productivity
Organisms will adapt and change to closer meet the conditions of their environment and to increase rates of survival and productivity
When the above tenets are no longer met, organisms will decline and die.
