Voices from the Second Republic of South Vietnam (1967–1975)
This volume recovers the stories of those who strove to build a constitutional structure of representative government in South Vietnam during a war for survival with a totalitarian state.


"This volume is a welcome addition to a growing scholarly literature about South Vietnam. Its personal testimonies provide key details not only about the political and military history of that country but also about the complex backgrounds and worldviews of the men who governed it. It is a record of the hopes and hardships of a group of South Vietnamese who sought to build a stable, prosperous society in a time of decolonization and civil war."—Charles Keith, Michigan State University
