Down with Colonialism! (Revolutions)by Chi Minh Ho
Synopses & Reviews
Revolutions: Classic revolutionary writings set ablaze by today's radical writers. This essential new series features classic texts by key figures who took center-stage during a period of insurrection. Each book is introduced by a major contemporary radical writer who shows how these incendiary words still have the power to inspire, to provoke and maybe to ignite new revolutions...
Ho Chi Minh (1890-1969) was the founder of the Vietminh and President of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. He played a key role in the formation of the French, Chinese, and Vietnamese Communist movements and fought successfully against Japanese, French, and American imperialism, becoming a hate-figure of the American state during the Vietnam War. Anti-globalization activist Walden Bello shows why Ho Chi Minh should still be read by anti-colonialists the world over.
Book News Annotation:
The legendary leader of Vietnam was not big on revolutionary theory, says Bello, but he and fellow anti-imperialists today might learn from and be inspired by his portrayals of a committed revolutionary translating the concepts and ideas into strategy, tactics, and organization that would defeat two empires. He collects 49 speeches, essays, position statements, reports, and public letters. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
