First published in 1971, "Vietnam Inc." was crucial in challenging public attitudes in the United States, 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 reporting, and as such it is one of the most detailed surveys of any conflict. Showing us the true horrors of the war as well as a study of Vietnamese rural life, Griffiths created a compelling argument against the de-humanizing power of the modern war machine and against American imperialism. Rare and highly sought-after, the book has become one of the enduring classics of photojournalism and is now available in this new edition - a careful recreation of the original with Philip Jones Griffiths' personal layouts and commentaries. The reissue also includes an introduction by the American linguist and political critic Noam Chomsky.
