Review: "Photographer-author Philip Jones Griffiths has spent three years in Vietnam observing the violent confrontation of Western democracy and the East. In more than 250 photographs interspersed with spare, ironic and highly informed text, he has produced a unique documentary. Vietnam Inc. shows what the collision of values means in basic human terms: the destruction of the life of a people. It is also the first book to draw attention to the war's metamorphosis from a ground troop operation to a fully automated and impersonal death-dealing technology. The ground troops will be brought home and the war will continue without them."--Jacket.
