Capital as Will and Imagination
Schumpeter's Guide to the Postwar Japanese Miracle
Mark Metzler
Joseph Schumpeter is not thought of as a theorist of credit-supercharged high-speed growth, but that is what he became in postwar Japan. This new view helps also to explain Japan's bubble, and the global bubbles that have followed it.

Jessica M. Chapman
Based on extensive work in Vietnamese, French, and American archives, Chapman offers a detailed account of three crucial years, 1953–1956, during which a new Vietnamese political order was established in the south.

American Foreign Policy in Cold War Laos
Seth Jacobs
The Universe Unraveling is a provocative reinterpretation of U.S.-Laos relations in the years leading up to the Vietnam War. U.S. policy toward Laos under Eisenhower and Kennedy cannot be understood apart from the traits Americans ascribed to Lao allies.
