«Un romanzo dovrei venire a scrivere e nient’altro. Non resta che sublimare tutta questa roba in qualcosa che non sia l’articoletto. Non troverò il tempo?» annotava Terzani. E quasi come una favola, sanguinaria eppure ricca di poesia e fragranze tropicali, Fantasmi inizia tra pipistrelli, palazzi reali ed elefanti semisacri. Testimonianza unica di un Tiziano Terzani reporter, giovane ed entusiasta, interessato ai «fatti», che con stupore si avvicina a ogni dettaglio e crede ancora sia possibile influenzare la Storia, questo testo ricostruisce in presa diretta l’olocausto che trasformò il paese nel regno di un orrore onnipresente perché «l’orrore siamo noi». I suoi «dispacci» dalla Cambogia, per la prima volta raccolti in forma di libro, come perle di una collana, giorno dopo giorno, ricostruiscono non solo la storia che ha trasformato un intero paese ma anche l’uomo che l’ha seguita per raccontarla. Da qui infatti prende corpo la svolta che lo porterà ad abbandonare ogni fiducia nell’ideologia, in cui pure aveva creduto, per iniziare un nuovo cammino di ricerca. Nella Cambogia – unico paese dell’Asia che aveva continuato a visitare per 25 anni – Terzani vedeva in piccolo la tragedia del mondo in grande. Fantasmi è dunque un testo imprescindibile per capire le ragioni che lo hanno spinto a voltare le spalle al mondo e cambiare direzione. «I cambogiani lo sanno da secoli: la vita è una ruota e la Storia non è progresso», ricordava già allora, prima che altre guerre di invasione e altre lotte fratricide conferissero un’eco per sempre attuale alle sue parole.

Few places in the world are as fascinating as Angkor, the heart of the immense Khmer empire that flourished in Indochina from the 9th to the 13th century and is today a magnificent archaeological park. The Khmers, who lived in present-day Cambodia exploited the special features of the Angkor plain and created an incredible hydraulic network of basins, canals and rice paddies that not only guaranteed subsistence for a million persons but also made it possible to accumulate a surplus used to finance innumerable constructions. The Khmer kings were skilful and warlike rulers who, drawing inspiration from the Indian concepts of regality and from the local cults of spirits and deified ancestors, built monumental pyramid temples as reproductions and representations of the mythical cosmic mountain, Meru. What is more, every temple was reflected in a large pool that served the practical purpose of a reservoir and the symbolic function of a representation of the primeval ocean. The result was a liquid checkerboard dotted with temples, wooden buildings and bamboo huts and swarming with markets, carts, dugout canoes, animals and people. The only remains of Angkor, the great capital city consisting of numerous urban areas that rose up over the centuries, are its temples, invaded by the luxuriant vegetation. The plant world has regained possession of what were once human settlements, bursting through the stones in a suffocating maze of branches and lianas; indeed, the presence of this greenery that adds to the ineffable artistic beauty of the Angkor temples a magical atmosphere of distant times and remote worlds. AUTHOR: Marilia Albanese a graduate in Sanskrit and Indology, with a diploma in Hindi Language and Indian Culture, is the director of the Lombardy Section of the Italian Institute for Africa and the Orient (I.A.O.) at the University of Milan.

Karen Coates and Jerry Redfern spent more than seven years traveling in Laos, talking to farmers, scrap-metal hunters, people who make and use tools from UXO, people who hunt for death beneath the earth and render it harmless. With their words and photographs, they reveal the beauty of Laos, the strength of Laotians, and the commitment of bomb-disposal teams. People take precedence in this account, which is deeply personal without ever becoming a polemic.
