9781440120206: The Tiger and the Hare: Chasing the Dragon

The Tiger and the Hare offers an exciting and unusual take on America's Vietnam adventure. Author Jane Chai presents the thrilling story of a young American woman caught up in the seething intrigue of South Vietnam in “the early days” of 1962 and 1963, an absolutely critical period which set the stage---for better or worse---for the massive U.S. intervention that followed later. She fully captures the mood and flavor of that time. She deftly weaves real-life events and personalities into the story, adding not only credibility but unique insight to her tale. The book is in fact a masterful blend of fact and fiction, an important historical novel that for those of us who served there in those critical years is probably the only way the true story can be properly told. The Tiger and the Hare is a major contribution to that elusive understanding. James Rosenthal, Political Officer at the U.S. Embassy in Saigon, 1961-1965. The Tiger and the Hare goes a long way in illuminating how the U.S. became ensnared in a war in my country. Skillfully told, a young American female scholar's enchantment with the history and culture of Vietnam conflicts with the rigid aims of her own country. This riveting tale of discovery describes two lunar years essential to understanding the subsequent years of war. Nguyen Van Canh, University of Saigon Professor of Law and Politics; Author, Vietnam Under Communism, 1975-1982, Hoover Institution Ms. Chai does an admirable job of evoking the issues and atmosphere of Vietnam in the early sixties. Calvin E. Mehlert, Foreign Service Officer (ret.), Aide to Edward G. Lansdale

Book Description iUniverse. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 416 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.5in. x 1.2in.Vietnam is peaceful and beautiful when Linnea Miller, a Southeast Asian scholar, arrives in Saigon in December of 1961. Working with the United States Aid for International Development, shes charged with the task of helping the Hmong people change their growing habits from poppies to berries. Linnea finds herself caught between the people she is trying to help and the growing national interests of the country she calls home. Her excursions and adventures expose her to many situations, such as probes into an opium network that takes her into a pirate lair in the Mekong swamp. As events and relationships escalate, Linnea witnesses the self-immolation of a Buddhist monk and realizes the world she knows is about to change. She has no idea it will include the assassinations of two presidents, not to mention what she discovers about her boss who has become her lover. In The Tiger and the Hare, author Jane Miller Chai speaks with the authority of one who has lived the events. Passionately written and intimately told, this story opens a rare window into the events preceding United States military involvement in Vietnam, and forms an understanding of the inception of conflict from a personal perspective. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9781440120206
