LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Allen & Unwin, London - first edition, 1986. Hardcover, 9½" x 6¼", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers etc. Barcode excised from ffep. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD price-clipped dust jacket. Light-grey cloth-bound boards with gold title to spine, map, Notes, Chronology, Glossary, and Index. This book traces the history of the forty-year-long Vietnamese revolution from a sympathetic perspective, and it portrays the American involvement as the culmination of a century-long struggle by the western powers to retain their influence over that country. Kolko also has a sharp insight into American strategic thinking; warning that unless US decision-makers rethink their policies, the ghastly slaughter of Vietnam may not be the last.
