The Sixties Unplugged: A Kaleidoscopic History of a Disorderly Decade

VIEWS: 17 PAGES: 2

[...] De Groot's deeply cynical outlook is, in its own way, a "belief system," one that focuses almost entirely on the negative aspects of the decade and only rarely on the positive. [...] the very real gains that came out of that decade are ignored or dismissed, while De Groot focuses all his efforts on deconstructing what he claims are cherished myths: [...] much of the resistance to American-backed Saigon rule was from the South Vietnamese themselves, whether that was through direct military action in joining the National Liberation Front (which had over 300,000 members by 1962, many of them recruited in the South), by non-compliance with Saigon's attempts at governance, or by refusal to cooperate with the American military effort.
