About This Book

The American author was in Vietnam as a combat journalist in the late sixties, and returned to Hanoi 1997-2001. This careful but informal account of Vietnam and its people today will counter many common stereotypes. The wide canvas includes: the contrast between US and Vietnam attitudes to the past; the nature of urban and rural daily life; the conflict of pressures in politics and government; the international population in Hanoi and elsewhere. Many personal contacts convey the continuing resoluteness of rich and poor despite hardships and disillusionment.
