    Reaktion Books 2014; US$ 45.00

    Outside of its war with the United States, Vietnam?s past has often been neglected and understudied.

Seeking to reshape these accounts, Descending Dragon, Rising Tiger chronicles the vast sweep... more...

  • "War Stories"by Gary Kulik

    Potomac Books 2011; US$ 29.95

    War stories are mostly innocent fables and understood as such by both the teller and the hearer. However, they have long been used for political and national purposes, and those about the war in Vietnam were no exception, as painfully evidenced in the 2004 presidential campaign. John Kerry campaigned as a war hero. His opponents cast him as a liar... more...

  • The Spitting Imageby Jerry Lembcke

    NYU Press 2000; US$ 26.00

    One of the most resilient images of the Vietnam era is that of the anti-war protester often a woman spitting on the uniformed veteran just off the plane. The lingering potency of this icon was evident during the Gulf War, when war supporters invoked it to discredit their opposition. In this startling book, Jerry Lembcke demonstrates that not a... more...

  • Bernard Fallby Dorothy Fall

    Potomac Books 2011; US$ 18.95

    Bernard Fall wrote the classics Street Without Joy and Hell in a Very Small Place , which detailed the French experience in Vietnam.

  • No Peace, No Honorby Larry Berman

    Free Press 2001; US$ 14.00

    In 1973, Henry Kissinger shared the Nobel Peace Prize for the secret negotiations that led to the Agreement on Ending the War and Restoring Peace in Vietnam. Nixon famously declared the 1973 agreement to be "peace with honor"; America was disengaging, yet South Vietnam still stood to fight its own war. Kissinger promptly moved to seal up his personal... more...

  • Ending the Vietnam Warby Henry Kissinger

    Touchstone 2003; US$ 38.95

    The Definitive Account Many other authors have written about what they thought happened -- or thought should have happened -- in Vietnam, but it was Henry Kissinger who was there at the epicenter, involved in every decision from the long, frustrating negotiations with the North Vietnamese delegation to America's eventual extrication from the war.... more...

  • Vietnam: Anatomy of a Peaceby Gabriel Kolko

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 43.95
