UPDATE: Taylor & Francis have now made this review available for free download.
Kosmas Tsokhas has reviewed Geoffrey Gunn’s new book Rice Wars in Colonial Vietnam: The Great Famine and the Viet Minh Road to Power for JCA.
Published by Rowman & Littlefield, an independent publisher based in the U.S., the book “offers the first detailed English-language examination of the Great Vietnamese Famine of 1945, which left at least a million dead, and links it persuasively to the largely unexpected Viet Minh seizure of power only months later.”
Geoff has his own website and readers may find other items of interest there.
Geoff is a long-time member of the JCA Editorial Board, and we congratulate him on his latest work.
