Written in a simple and straightforward manner, “Vietnam Geopolitical Affairs” (published by Archway Publishing) is the first English translation by Elizabeth T. Le, the daughter of Tùng-Phong, who wrote the book in 1965.

In 1965, in the midst of the Vietnam War, Tùng-Phong reached out to the Vietnamese leaders in the North and South. He wanted to inform his contemporaries about the short-term needs of Vietnam as a whole and opine on long-term goals. The result was the book he published in October 1965: Chính-Đề Việt-Nam or Vietnam Geopolitical Affairs.

Tùng-Phong explored where Vietnam stood on the world stage and the historical baggage it carried. Moreover, according to Le, the author sought to find out how Vietnam could propel itself forward for the sake of future generations.

Le hopes her father’s book helps readers learn “a broad perspective of the complex interactions between a small country with an ancient civilization, like Vietnam, and the world.”
