Chen (b. 1926, Fujian, China - d. June 9, 1993, Newark) political scienctist and historian. "Historians will undoubtedly record that no war with a foreign enemy has so divided theUnited States as the war in Vietnam. In the debate on the war, the questio n has often been asked: Why and how did the United States get involved? This is one of the central questions in Professor Chen's book, which describesHo Chi Minh's rise to leadership of the Vietnamese Communist party and his relations with the Nationalists and then the Communists in China. The auth or traces Vietnamese/Chinese relations from 300 B.C., through the French takeover in 1885 and the Chinese revolution of the 1940s to the Geneva Conference in 1954, when the American involvement in Vietnam began. Two chapters are devoted to the negotiations at Geneva and to a comparison of the positions of the United States, North Vietnam, Britain, Communist China, and the Soviet Union. Professor Chen explores the questions: Did the Sino~Vietnamese relationship after World War II assist or hinder the Viet~Minh? Why was the Viet~Minh able to obtain Chinese military aid without inviting massive Chinese intervention, as happened in Korea? What was the Soviet position on the Indochinese war of 1946~1954 and at Geneva? Is there any difference between Vietnam's relations with the weak Nationalist China of the 1940s and those with the powerful Communist regime of the 1950s? In Taiwan Professor Chen obtained access to a large collection of unpublished Chinese official and private documents concerning Sino~Vietnamese relations during the period1940 to 1950. In addition to this material, he makes use of interviews and correspondence with North Vietnamese and Nationalist Chinese officials act ive during the 1930s and the Second World War, supplemented by Vietnamese and Chinese publications and monitored radio broadcasts from party~controlled stations." - from the dj.

McCOY, Alfred W. with Cathleen B. READ and Leonard P. ADAMS II. The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia . New York : Harper and Row, (1972). Book Club Edition. Pp (4),v-xii,(2),1-464,(2) + 24-page photo section. 8vo, rust cloth. "The fabled Golden Triangle, where Laos, Thailand, and Burma meet, long a traditional opium~growing area, now provides 70 percent of the world's illicit supply of heroin. And many elements in the governments of these countries, and in the government of South Vietnam - most of which are supported by U.S. military and financial aid - are deeply (and lucratively) involved in the growing, processing, transport, and distribution of narcotics. Howhas this situation come about? Basing their narrative on firsthand researc h in Asia and Europe, the authors trace the whole story since the end of World War II. They demonstrate that during the First Indochina War (1946~ 1954) the security of Saigon and its environs and the loyalty of the hill tribes depended on profits from and some protection for the opium traffic. Similarly, it became necessary for the United States when it took over the French commitment in 1954, to look the other way in the matter of the involvement in the drug traffic of succeeding Vietnamese regimes. After Diem's downfall in 1963 it became apparent that money from the rackets - especially narcotics - was vital to any regime's survival. The authors found that in Laos, opium crops found their way from the hill villages into a secret base at Long Tieng; in Burma, the CIA financed remnants of Chiang Kai~shek's Nationalist Army, which later became self~supporting by taking over 90 percent ofthe opium shipments from the rebel Shan States of Burma; that in Thailand, shaky regimes relied on American support and opium money to help bolster t heir stability. They also found that the Mafia, working through Corsican criminal syndicates from Marseille, had established outposts in Southeast Asia for its international narcotics smuggling operations during the French occupation. In spite of recent well~publicized seizures of massive shipments of heroin from Southeast Asia, heroin continues to flood the country, spreading into every level of this society and shredding the fabric of everyday life. U.S. government estimates of the number of addicts has leaped from 315,000 in 1969 to over 560,000 in 1972. This book puts all the pieces of this ghastly puzzle together, and then maps the possible avenues out of the horror, suggesting that America may have to choose between our commitments inSoutheast Asia and getting heroin out of our high schools." - from dj.

MUKHERJEE, Bharati. Jasmine. (Markham, Ont.) : Viking, (1989). First Canadian Printing. Pp (12),3-241,(5). 8vo, red cloth spine, green paper covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. "When Jasmine Vidh, a young woman in a small Indian town, is widowed by a terrorist bomb, her fate is a life of isolation and despair. But six years later, Jasmine has become Jane Ripplemeyer, resident of Iowa and member of an unsteady and unconventional American family - a family that includes an Iowa banker, an adopted Vietnamese refugee and her own pregnant self. In following this transformation of a younq lite,Bharati Mukherjee has written a novel of stunning intensity, striking iron y and gentle humour. Jasmin's path through her new homeland weaves through a shifting American landscape: from Florida and the primitive brutality of the scarred Vietnam vet who brings her there; to an India recreated with stifling insularity in Queens; to Manhattan's upper west side and the exotic mystery of the selt-assured young couple for whom she works. But it is in Iowa, when Bud Ripplemeyer is crippled by a desperate farmer, that Jasmine learns how completely her fate has become part of America's. In Jasmine, Bharati Mukherjee has created a heroine as exotic and unexpecte as the many worlds she lives in. " (from the dj). Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 20.00
