"The Saigon Sisters: Vietnamese Women Offer Insights into Peace"

September 21, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Online Add to Calendar

While 30,000 books have been written about war in Vietnam, few are by Vietnamese and fewer still by Vietnamese women. As military historian Thomas Ricks asks, "How much longer will American scholars try to understand the Vietnam War while largely disregarding the views of the victors?" (5/30/21 NYT book review) The Saigon Sisters: Privileged Women in the Resistance helps fill that void by presenting the views of women who joined the anti-French resistance in the 1940s and fight for independence through the end of the Vietnam War in 1975. An oral biography, The Saigon Sisters presents women's stories in their own words. Go to cornellpress.cornell.edu and use code 09FLYER for 30% off. Link to "The Saigon Sisters" book here.
