Rare and highly sought-after photobook documenting the Vietnam War
Text by Philip Jones Griffiths, with a foreword by Noam Chomsky
First published in 1971, Vietnam Inc. played a crucial part in changing public attitudes in the US, turning the tide of opinion and ultimately helping to put an end to the Vietnam War. Philip Jones Griffiths' classic account of the war was the outcome of three years of intensive reporting and is one of the most detailed surveys of any conflict in twentieth-century history.
Showing us the true horrors of the war, as well as a study of Vietnamese rural life, the author creates a compelling argument against the de-humanizing power of the modern war machine and American imperialism. Rare and highly sought-after, the book has become one of the enduring classics of photo-journalism. It is now available in this new edition - a careful re-creation of the original with Griffiths' personal layouts and commentaries. A new introduction by US linguist and notorious political critic Noam Chomsky traces the book's impact in changing public opinion.
