An International History of the War for Peace in VietnameBook - 2012
Hanoi's War renders transparent the internal workings of America's most elusive enemy during the Cold War and shows that the war fought during the peace negotiations was bloodier and much more wide ranging than it had been previously. Using never-before-seen archival materials from the Vietnam Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as materials from other archives around the world, Nguyen explores the politics of war-making and peace-making not only from the North Vietnamese perspective but also from that of South Vietnam, the Soviet Union, China, and the United States, presenting a uniquely international portrait.

“Too often.... the Vietnam War is still viewed solely through the American lens. Leaders in Washington, U.S. soldiers on the battlefront, and American protestors on the streets take center stage while the Vietnamese disappear in the background, part of the terrain in which Americans became quagmired. However, the war was at least as much a Vietnamese conflict as it was an American one. Viewing the conflict from the perspectives of leaders in Hanoi, a new international history of the Vietnam War, and indeed of the wider Cold War, emerges.”
