According to Tuan, however, South Vietnam in the last decade of its life developed considerable governmental cohesion and internal social strength. Before the final failure of will, the South and its defenders were well on the way to becoming a viable society that had managed with American assistance to lift itself by its bootstraps to the point to economic take-off. Tuan argues that South Vietnam's fall was not inevitable. This controversial book will be of great interest to all those concerned with the Vietnamese experience during the period 1954-1975.

About the Author: Dr. Nguyen Anh Tuan graduated from the prestigious Ecole Nationale d'Administration and the elite Institut d'Etudes Politiques in Paris, and received his Ph.D. in Economics from the Kansas State University. He held a wide range of positions in teaching, government, and international organizations from 1965 to 1975. He was Professor of Economics and Public Finance at the University of Saigon. He served as General Director of Planning, Financial Adviser to the Prime Minister, and Minister of Finance of South Vietnam. He was head of the Vietnamese Delegation to many international conferences of ECAFE, the Colombo Plan, and the IMF, to name a few, and a member of the Governing Council of the United Nations Asian Institute for Economic Development and Planning. Dr. Nguyen Anh Tuan fled Vietnam for the United States in 1983 and, as of publication, was a visiting lecturer at the University of Kansas and a political economist consultant.
