Description

Christina Schwenkel's absorbing study explores how the "American War" is remembered and commemorated in Vietnam today-in official and unofficial histories and in everyday life.

Schwenkel analyzes visual representations found in monuments and martyrs' cemeteries, museums, photography and art exhibits, battlefield tours, and related sites of "trauma tourism." In these transnational spaces, American and Vietnamese memories of the war intersect in ways profoundly shaped by global economic liberalization and the return of American citizens as tourists, pilgrims, and philanthropists.
