Book excerpt: "The Green Belt" is the story of a Vietnamese newspaper reporter who journeyed into the central highlands of Vietnam during the war in the late 1960s and witnessed the traditional antagonism between tribal highlanders and lowland Vietnamese. Of interest and current significance is the narrator's account of the highlanders' side of the conflict, and his evaluation of alternative solutions that could have advanced the welfare of ethnic minorities. Socially relevant, the novel recounts a true ongoing conflict. Fighting over land and religion in Vietnam's central highlands is a human rights issue frequently making the news. Several thousand Montagnards, many of whom fought alongside the U.S. Special Forces during the Vietnam War, resettled in North Carolina in the period after 1975. This large community never stops growing as a result of the endless exodus for freedom. The compelling story of this novel, blended of fact and fiction, reveals the roots of unrest and is a unique voice advocating survival of indigenous peoples in mainland Southeast Asia.

Read and Download Vina A. Lanzona book Women Warriors in Southeast Asia in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Full book Women Warriors in Southeast Asia. This book was released on 2020-01-07 with total page 318 pages. Book excerpt: This book brings together a wide range of case studies to explore the experiences and significance of women warriors in Southeast Asian history from ancient to contemporary times. Using a number of sources, including royal chronicles, diaries, memoirs and interviews, the book discusses why women warriors were active in a domain traditionally preserved for men, and how they arguably transgressed peacetime gender boundaries as agents of violence. From multidisciplinary perspectives, the chapters assess what drove women to take on a variety of roles, namely palace guards, guerrillas and war leaders, and to what extent their experiences were different to those of men. The reader is taken on an almost 1,500-year long journey through a crossroads region well-known for the diversity of its peoples and cultures, but also their ability to creatively graft foreign ideas onto existing ones. The book also explores the re-integration of women into post-conflict Southeast Asian societies, including the impact (or lack thereof) of newly established international norms, and the frequent turn towards pre-conflict gender roles in these societies. Written by an international team of scholars, this book will be of interest to academics working on Southeast Asian Studies, Gender Studies, low-intensity conflicts and revolutions, and War, Conflict, and Peace Studies.

Read and Download Russ Katz book The Principal s Daughter in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Full book The Principal s Daughter. This book was released on 2021-06-01 with total page 242 pages. Book excerpt: At just ten years old, playing in the lush trees, starting mischief with the boys; Kim loved her family and friends, the sounds of the market, the tastes of the foods, she enjoyed life, and wished it would never change. What she didn’t know yet was all that she loved was about to be torn from her prying fists. "Wake up, wake up…" her sister yelled, shaking her. Looking out the window behind their bed, Vi?t C?ng marched just a hundred meters from her home just outside Saigon. Pop pop pop pop gunshots from the AK-47’s jolted their muscles as a full scale attack on the American Army base began. Their small home caught in the crossfire, they spent the night of T?t, the 1968 New Year, in the safety of a small dark makeshift cellar. The war finally came to an emotionally sad ending, the streets in crisis, people fleeing by the thousands. The North Vietnamese Army declared victory renaming Saigon to Ho Chi Minh City. April 30th, 1975…this was a day that will change Kim’s life forever. Forced into oppressive Communist life was hard and depressing. Kim’s dreams of an education in America were crushed, her husband taken to prison, her brother in law taken to a reeducation camp, their family business ransacked and closed by the police; food became scarce, money even worse. Stories of boat people attempting escape caught her attention. Such sad stories though, a coworker captured by pirates, beaten, and then tossed to the sea to die. A mother losing her children, drowning in the seas. The list goes on but her desire for freedom outweighed the risks. In less than a year she found herself being stuffed into a hidden compartment at the bottom of a small wooden fishing boat with many other desperate souls seeking freedom. The darkness, rancid smells, and thick air choked her lungs. Cramped, her body ached and below her waist was all but numb. Without warning the diesel engine kicked up louder and the boat started moving faster. Pah pah pah pah pah she heard in rapid succession. Bullets pinged off the side of the vessel, splintering the wood through to the cabin. Still, the boat did not slow. Again Pah pah pah pah pah. The sounds of bullets hitting the side of the boat echoed in her ears. Everyone jumped. The engines kicked off and the boat came to a dead stop. Oh my god they already caught us. Falling over into the dirty sea-ridden floor of the boat, fish juice mixed with unthinkable bodily fluids washed back and forth around her face. Reaching her hand to her side, feeling a sharp searing pain. It was wet, blood was everywhere. The shimmering brilliant lights of the spot lights and yelling faded into the background as her head became light, dizzy, as everything went black… Book Review 1: "I knew little about Vietnam other than living through the war myself. I watched the protests here at home and lost friends over there. One of my favorite movies remains “The Killing Fields” about the journalist Sydney Schanberg and his friend Dith Pran. While that movie is primarily about Cambodia, I believe much applies to Vietnam as well. This book opened my eyes to a whole new facet of the Vietnam war; the people; the villagers who had to live through it, not only when the US pulled out, but for years after as well. It is a well written and thoughtful accounting of the day to day life of one young woman. Her terror and hardships were heart wrenching. If you’d like a down to earth account of the war, this is the book for you. No who is right or wrong, just what was the reality for one woman. I would like to read more from Russ Katz. Thank you to Netgalley and Dog Ear Publishing for allowing me the opportunity to read this book." -- Tripower53, NetGalley Book review 2: "This manuscript tells an extraordinary story, a story that deserves to be told to as many people as want to know about it. And there are many facets of the present draft of The Principal’s Daughter that are very, very well done indeed. It is, up to a point, very effectively put together. The material is rich, that characters are vivid, and the narrative itself is riveting and moving. Whatever you do with this, keep Kim’s spirit alive. She is a Personage. You are lucky to know her. I am lucky to know something about her now. That character, that family, that place in the mango trees: magic. You got yourself a million acres of magic here, pal. Don’t screw it up! (You won’t, because you know it’s magic.) I don’t think I’ve ever read a piece of prose that so galvanized my attention--" -- Kevin Anderson & Associates Book Review 3: "This was a fantastic story about an inspirational woman, Kim who lives during the Vietnam war and experiences not only their quest for freedom, but also her own. Kim is a resilient soul whose dreams are destroyed and it is up to her bravery and hope to remake them. This is not a typical story and it is one that will both teach you something about Vietnam and touch your heart. Rich in description and food references, the world comes alive and while we will never be able to know these experiences, we begin to get a glimmer of these moments: both good and bad. Notes: I loved the book! I will be posting a review on my blog, utopia-state-of-mind.com, on December 7th and will update this review when it goes live. Additionally I will be posting my review on Netgalley within the next two days from now." -- Lili Hadsell, NetGalley

Read and Download Vinh Quyen book Debris of Debris in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Full book Debris of Debris. This book was released on 2022-07-06 with total page 310 pages. Book excerpt: As conveyed through the title, the characters in the novel suffer a similar fate to that of 'debris', a concept meant to evoke the images of the physical debris left over from the destruction caused by the recently ended Vietnam War. In this case however, the 'debris' is intangible and largely internal, found in the historical setting of the book, in society, in the characters' families, and even the psychological and emotional 'debris' of each individual person. The novel is a story not unique to Vietnam, but is one that applies to any morden day post-war period. Writers' Association Publishing House I finished Debris of Debris today. What a marvelous novel! The inter-related stories that make up the novel are fascinating and often charming. Your variety of characters and their stories give a poignant and comprehensive portrait of, as you write in your acknowledgements, “the lost generation of young Vietnamese intellectuals.” Reading their lives saddened me once again, and in a very personalized way–because I could connect to them–that once we had tried to kill each other, and too often succeeded. In short, I was both enlightened and moved by the book. I’m very impressed also that you wrote it in English. Wayne Karlin – American veteran writer - Letter to the author At the moment, Vietnamese literature is lacking such a selection for English-speaking audiences. In this sense, Vinh Quyen’s Debris of Debris is firmly planted at the center of a cultural crossroads. Zac Herman - Youth Weekly

This book was released on 2012-10-03 with total page 466 pages. Book excerpt: It is said that in war heaven and earth change places not once, but many times. When Heaven and Earth Changed Places is the haunting memoir of a girl on the verge of womanhood in a world turned upside down. The youngest of six children in a close-knit Buddhist family, Le Ly Hayslip was twelve years old when U.S. helicopters langed in Ky La, her tiny village in central Vietnam. As the government and Viet Cong troops fought in and around Ky La, both sides recruited children as spies and saboteurs. Le Ly was one of those children. Before the age of sixteen, Le Ly had suffered near-starvation, imprisonment, torture, rape, and the deaths of beloved family members—but miraculously held fast to her faith in humanity. And almost twenty years after her escape to Ameica, she was drawn inexorably back to the devastated country and family she left behind. Scenes of this joyous reunion are interwoven with the brutal war years, offering a poignant picture of vietnam, then and now, and of a courageous woman who experienced the true horror of the Vietnam War—and survived to tell her unforgettable story.

Read and Download Muthiah Alagappa book Political Legitimacy in Southeast Asia in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Full book Political Legitimacy in Southeast Asia. This book was released on 1995 with total page 466 pages. Book excerpt: Despite the end of the Cold War, security continues to be a critical concern of Asian states. Allocations of state revenues to the security sector continue to be substantial and have, in fact, increased in several countries. As Asian nations construct a new security architecture for the Asia-Pacific region, Asian security has received increased attention by the scholarly community. But most of that scholarship has focused on specific issues or selected countries. This book aims to lay the groundwork for a comprehensive, in-depth understanding of Asian security by investigating conceptions of security in sixteen Asian countries. The book undertakes an ethnographic, country-by-country study of how Asian states conceive of their security. For each country, it identifies and explains the security concerns and behavior of central decision makers, asking who or what is to be protected, against what potential threats, and how security policies have changed over time. This inside-out or bottom-up approach facilitates both identification of similarities and differences in the security thinking and practice of Asian countries and exploration of their consequences. The crucial insights into the dynamics of international security in the region provided by this approach can form the basis for further inquiry, including debates about the future of the region.
