Schanberg won the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting for his New York Times coverage of the Khmer Rouge takeover of Cambodia. The book’s centerpiece is his signature work, 'The Death and Life of Dith Pran,' which was turned into the Academy Award winning movie The Killing Fields starring Sam Waterston as Schanberg. The book is dedicated to Dith Pran, who died in 2008 of pancreatic cancer, and Schanberg’s wife, Jane.
