Vi?t Nam at peace

Vi?t Nam at peace Griffiths, Philip Jones

Viet Nam at Peace is the monumental chronicle of a country struggling to emerge from the apocalyptic destruction of war--a destruction so seismic that many thought (vainly) that it would end all contemporary imperial aggression. Phillip Jones Griffiths has visited Vietnam 25 times since the end of the war. The first Westerner to travel by road from Hanol to Ho Chi Minh City after the war, and later the Ho Chi Minh trail, he has amassed an unparalleled photographic record of the country's post-war transformation. Featuring 300 black and white images. Viet Nam at Peace chronicles not only the country's shattered terrain, but also the destruction of its citizens' culture, minds, hearts, and hopes. Limbless heroes, Amerasian children, and boat people are shown here alongside horrific attempts by the Vietnamese to curb the hydra of today's increasing consumerist excesses. From the first days of terrible hardships, as joys of victory were quickly tempered by the reality of the extent of the destruction, to today's re-emergence of social problems like prostitution and drug addiction, Griffiths paints a comprehensive and complex portrait of a society forever marked by the brutality of war.
