“Dr. Sophal Ear studies how states can rebuild after war. His interest in the subject is a deeply personal one. He shows us a picture of his family in 1977 in Vietnam. As he’s Cambodian, there’s a story behind the picture. His parents, like so many others, were persecuted under Pol Pot, and made to work in rice fields.”

TED University is packed with fascinating stories, and Ethan has managed to give accurate summary to each one. Not an easy task.
