Summary

Vietnam. The name of the country stirs strong emotions in people around the world. Even 30 years after the Vietnam War ended, it continues to be a divisive issue in United States politics. From the war to some of the earliest reports of avian flu, it’s clear that what happens in Vietnam continues to affect millions of people around the world. Vietnam stretches from the mighty Mekong River in the south to a solid group of mountains in the north, and its people and past reflect the rule of outsiders, including China, Japan, and France. Today, Vietnam continues its quest for a stronger, freer economy, while laboring under a Communist government. In this book, you will learn about the intricate history, immense beauty, and ongoing challenges of this intriguing and resilient country.
