Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0714846031, Paperback)First published in 1971, "Vietnam Inc." was crucial in changing public attitudes in the United States, turning the tide of opinion, and ultimately putting an end to the Vietnam War. Philip Jones Griffiths' classic account of the war was the outcome of three years reporting, and is one of the most detailed surveys of any conflict. Showing us the true horrors of the war as well as a study of Vietnamese folk life, the author creates a compelling argument against the de-humanizing power of technology, and highlights the arrogance and hypocrisy of American imperialistic attitudes. Rare and highly sought-after, the book has become one of the enduring classics of photojournalism. This new edition is a careful recreation of the original, with Philip Jones Griffiths' personal layouts and commentaries, and includes a foreword by Noam Chomsky, who was profoundly affected by the book when it was originally published and now pays tribute to its power and importance in the new edition.
