In February 1979, China launched a full scale attack on Vietnam bringing to the surface the deep tension between the two socialist neighbours. The importance of the resultant war is often overlooked. Millions of people throughout the region were affected, and the frictions that remain in the wake of the war threaten the prospects for peace not only in Southeast Asia, but also the whole Asia-Pacific region as well. This is a full scale examination of the 1979 Sino-Vietnamese War - the events that led to it, the Cold War aftermath, and the implications for the region and beyond.

From Library Journal:

The 1979 China-Vietnam War had important consequences for Southeast Asia but has received little attention in the West. Using a variety of official sources from the governments of the United States, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, and the UN, as well as a host of books and scholarly journals, Hood (politics, Ursinus Coll.) has put together an account that seeks, as he writes in the introduction, "to be easily understood by the informed nonspecialist, and yet enlighten the Asian scholar or specialist in conflict studies seeking greater understanding of this ongoing power struggle." The book does exactly that, in a most effective manner. Other works on the subject, such as Chen King's China's War with Vietnam (Hoover Inst. Pr., 1987), deal with specialized aspects of the conflict in more detail but do not provide the interdisciplinary view of Dragons Entangled . An excellent selection for academic and larger public libraries.
