The American experience in Vietnam divided the US as a nation. However, Americans' understanding of the war remains superficial because they have never grasped the passionate commitment of the Vietnamese and their own competing visions of the what Vietnam was and what it might become. This text argues that to understand the Vietnam War, we must understand the Vietnamese, their culture and their ways of looking at the world. The author spent many years living and working in Vietnam. Winner of the 1994 American Library Association's Outstanding Academic Book Award.
