Groslier's remote temples

In The Shadow of Angkor - new edition by DatASIA
I've been trying to confirm whether a new publication from DatASIA Press has been published yet, but without any joy. Amazon tells me it came out in February but I have my doubts. In the Shadow of Angkor - Unknown Temples of Ancient Cambodia was written by Georges Groslier and concentrated on his 1913 expedition to some of the remoter temples of that era including Preah Vihear, Wat Phu, Beng Mealea and Banteay Chhmar. This modern edition by Kent Davis - enhanced with 75 period illustrations and detailed appendices - offers readers the first English translation of the dangers, discoveries and people encountered on his solitary adventures. It's a must-have edition for the hordes of temple hunters out there. DatASIA have already brought us Cambodian Dancers, Earth In Flower and Angkor The Magnificent and this looks like another great addition to their growing stable of historical books.
