Synopsis: Brett Dakin spent two years working in Laos and returned to the States a changed man. In Another Quiet American, he takes you through the corridors of power and the living rooms of the poor in Laos.

You'll meet his boss, a wealthy general whose power and reputation scares his countrymen; a prince with connections to the French colonial past; an American pilot who left home for Indochina during the war and never returned; and, rich Lao twenty-somethings who have all the money they could want, but no happiness.

Dakin provides a sympathetic yet irreverent glimpse into life in one of the world's few remaining communist nations, questioning the US's influence on the country and embarking on the soul-searching identity quest of an American abroad.

About the Author: Brett Dakin grew up in London and has lived in Washington, Tokyo, Vientiane, Vienna, Sarajevo, The Hague, and New York City. His writing has appeared in Foreign Affairs, the International Herald Tribune, The Washington Post, The Christian Science Monitor, The Guardian, the Washington Monthly, and The Diplomat. Brett has served as Chair of Legacies of War, a NGO dedicated to raising awareness about the Vietnam War-era bombing of Laos, a Term Member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and a member of the PEN American Center. He is a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School.
