There aren’t many positives to talk about when it comes to Pol Pot. I guess you could read some of his own works, however.

The Cambodian Peasants and Their Prospects for Modernization was written by Hou Yuon who was a member of the Marxist Circle, a group Pol Pot, along with Hou Youn was popular in prior to ruling Cambodia. His thesis could give you insight to what Pol Pot envisioned for Cambodia, but I can't find it. Pol Pot's paranoia was understandable given that America previously bombed it back to the stone age, but with what I know, I don't think it's a good idea to modernize by mobilizing the peasantry only and skipping or neglecting industrialization.

they don't speak positively of him because there are no positives to speak of

Retarded thing to do when your country is feudal.

Can any of you find Hou Yuon's The Cambodian Peasants and Their Prospects for Modernization?

Was Vickery pro-DK? From what I've read he was supportive of the Vietnamese invasion

Yeah, Vickery wasn't even pro-KR but pro-Vietnam. But he was still a top notch historian and more unbiased on Pol Pot/Cambodia than any anticommunist author.

Banned thought has several good articles that debunks many lies about the regime and has articles on the specific breakdown of relations between Vietnam and Cambodia.
