A Dragon Apparent; Travels in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam

by Norman Lewis - £12.99  Eland Publishing Ltd (2003)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780907871330 | ISBN 10: 090787133x

Travelling through Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia in the twilight of the French colonial regime, Norman Lewis witnesses these ancient civilisations as they were before the terrible devastation of the Vietnam War.
 
He creates a portrait of traditional societies struggling to retain their integrity in the embrace of the West. He meets emperors and slaves, brutal plantation owners and sympathetic French officers trapped by the economic imperatives of the colonial experiment. From tribal animists to Viet-Minh guerillas, he witnesses this heart-breaking struggle over and over, leaving a vital portrait of a society on the brink of catastrophic change.
