Fire in the Lake: The Vietnamese and the Americans in Vietnam

by

Fire in the Lake: The Vietnamese and the Americans in Vietnam Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This landmark work, based on Frances FitzGerald's own research and travels, takes us inside Vietnam — into the traditional, ancestor-worshiping villages and the corrupt crowded cities, into the conflicts between Communists and anti-Communists, Catholics and Buddhists, generals and monks — and reveals the country as seen through Vietnamese eyes. With a clarity and authority unrivaled by any book before it or since, "Fire in the Lake" shows how America utterly and tragically misinterpreted the realities of Vietnam.<BR>-- In the 30 years since its initial publication, "Fire in the Lake" has achieved the status of a classic.<BR>-- An essential text for students of Asian-American relations.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [479]-485) and index.
