Join us for a book launch of the just-released The United States, Southeast Asia, & Historical Memory, edited by Mark Pavlick with Caroline Luft.
The book pays homage, as Richard Falk writes in the introduction, “to the unfinished agenda of the Indochina wars.” It sheds new light, raises new critiques of the US interventions that caused so much death and destruction in Viet Nam, Laos and Cambodia. With articles documenting the lives of Laotian peasants living and dying under US bombing, the course of Cambodia’s history following horrific US bombing, and assessments of US destruction of Viet Nam, with articles by Channapha Khamvongsa and Noam Chomsky, Ngo Vinh Long and Gareth Porter, and many more.
Editor Mark Pavlick, a longtime activist in the US anti-war movement and the Indochina Mobile Education Project will be joined by participant authors Channapha Khamvongsa and Gareth Porter.
The event will be moderated by IPS’s Phyllis Bennis and it is open to the media.
