From Enemies to Partners-Vietnam, the U.S. and Agent Orange

November 8, 2017  • Le Ke Son and Charles R. Bailey

More than four decades after the end of the Vietnam War, the United States and Vietnam are just beginning to address the negative consequences of Agent Orange, the dioxin-contaminated herbicide used during the war. In this groundbreaking book, Le Ke Son and Charles R. Bailey outline the moral reasoning for a fuller American response and present further steps the United States and Vietnam can each take in a joint humanitarian initiative to resolve the legacy of Agent Orange/dioxin in Vietnam. They address the critical issues of whether dioxin pollution still exists in Vietnam, what needs to be done to finish the job of cleanup, how those exposed to Agent Orange in Vietnam are affected today, and the impact of Agent Orange on relations between the United States and Vietnam.
