Photographic dustwrapper with black and white coloured titles to the front panel and backstrip. Written at the height of the Vietnam conflict, where the eminent philosopher raises his voice against the conflict. As the front fold over panel blurb states "... Here he relates his growing involvement in the struggle and illustrates the development of his thought as the war escalated. The author guides the reader through a land of napalm and 'lazy dogs', gas and chemicals, corruption and concentration camps, charting an independent but highly committed position. The catalogue of atrocities is one of the best documented to appear in the West, but this book is far more than a compilation of horrors; it is an examination of the whole Cold War setting in which the conflict occurs, with the author never failing to words what must be done to save the Vietnamese people from further agony."
