Diem, the United States, and the fate of South Vietnam"As leader of South Vietnam from 1954 to 1963, Ngo Dinh Diem was hailed by some as a "miracle man" who had saved his country from communism. Others denounced him as a U.S. puppet or as a reactionary mandarin. In Misalliance, Edward Miller refutes these simplistic caricatures and presents a new interpretation of Diem and the rise and fall of his alliance with the United States. Drawing on American, French, and Vietnamese archival sources, Miller shows how Diem engineered his own rise to power and outmaneuvered his rivals in Saigon during the mid-1950s. He then embarked on an ambitious program of nation building that was based not on the advice offered by his U.S. advisors, but on his own vision of Vietnam's modernization. Overturning the conventional wisdom about Diem, Miller shows that he was a man with a plan--a plan that turned out to be deeply flawed, with disastrous consequences for both Vietnam and the United States"--Provided by publisher4303ocn063297750book20060.66Jacobs, SethCold war mandarin : Ngo Dinh Diem and the origins of America's war in Vietnam, 1950-1963For almost a decade, the tyrannical Ngo Dinh Diem governed South Vietnam as a one-party police state while the U.S. financed his tyranny. In this new book, Seth Jacobs traces the tragic history of the so-called ""Diem experiment"" from his first appearance in Washington as a penniless expatriate in 1950 to his murder by South Vietnamese soldiers on the outskirts of Saigon in 1963+-+13999079253644ocn049894924book20020.73Catton, Philip EDiem's final failure : prelude to America's War in Vietnam"Neither an American puppet, as communist propaganda claimed, nor a backward-looking mandarin, according to Western accounts, Catton's Diem is a tragic figure who finally ran out of time, just a few weeks before JFK's assassination and at a moment when it still seemed possible for America to avoid war."--BOOK JACKET+-+85776155252612ocn800721901book20130.76Chapman, Jessica MCauldron of resistance : Ngo Dinh Diem, the United States, and 1950s southern Vietnam"In 1955, Ngo Dinh Diem organized an election to depose chief-of-state Bao Dai, after which he proclaimed himself the first president of the newly created Republic of Vietnam. The United States sanctioned the results of this election, which was widely condemned as fraudulent, and provided substantial economic aid and advice to the RVN. Because of this, Diem is often viewed as a mere puppet of the United States, in service of its Cold War geopolitical strategy. That narrative, Jessica M. Chapman contends in Cauldron of Resistance, grossly oversimplifies the complexity of South Vietnam's domestic politics and, indeed, Diem's own political savvy. Based on extensive work in Vietnamese, French, and American archives, Chapman offers a detailed account of three crucial years, 1953-1956, during which a new Vietnamese political order was established in the south. It is, in large part, a history of Diem's political ascent as he managed to subdue the former Emperor Bao Dai, the armed Hoa Hao and Cao Dai religious organizations, and the Binh Xuyen crime organization. It is also an unparalleled account of these same outcast political powers, forces that would reemerge as destabilizing political and military actors in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Chapman shows Diem to be an engaged leader whose personalist ideology influenced his vision for the new South Vietnamese state, but also shaped the policies that would spell his demise. Washington's support for Diem because of his staunch anticommunism encouraged him to employ oppressive measures to suppress dissent, thereby contributing to the alienation of his constituency, and helped inspire the organized opposition to his government that would emerge by the late 1950s and eventually lead to the Vietnam War." -- Publisher's description1122ocn000489228book19720.88United StatesU.S. involvement in the overthrow of Diem, 1963: a staff study based on the Pentagon Papers, prepared for the use of the Committee on Foeign Relations, United States Senate822ocn046706282book20000.17O'Leary, Bradley SThe deaths of the Cold War kings : the assassinations of Diem & JFK+-+6785212306781ocn827297876visu19830.63Interview with Jack Keegan, 1981Father Jack Keegan was a classmate of Ngo Dinh Diem's at the Maryknoll Seminary. He recalls Diem as someone not of great importance, but rather as simply another student. He describes Diem as having a Chaplinesque walk and being very enigmatic. Keegan remembers that Diem was fluent in French yet spoke stilted English. Diem, according to Father Keegan, was very studious, taking his Catholic studies seriously. -- taken from Open Vault WGBH Media Library and Archives781ocn827298017visu19830.63Interview with Madame Ngo Dinh Nhu, 1982InterviewsAs the sister-in-law of President Diem, Madame Ngo Dinh Nhu was considered the first lady of South Vietnam in the late 1950s through the early 1960s. Here she argues that the Diem government was the only legitimate government in South Vietnam, that they were undermined by the United States and that the United States, therefore, paid a price. She discusses the Buddhist Crisis of 1963 and the results of the Paris Peace Accords. She reflects on Ngo Dinh Nhu and President Diem's characters and her own reputation as the "Dragon Lady" of Vietnam. Finally, she describes the diplomatic efforts of Ngo Dinh Nhu towards North Vietnam and the arrogance of the United States in intervening. -- taken from Open Vault WGBH Media Library and Archives781ocn827297755visu19830.63Interview with Frederick Nolting, 1981HistoryInterviewsFrederick Nolting was Ambassador to South Vietnam from 1961 -- 1963. Appointed by President Kennedy, he became closely associated with Ngo Dinh Diem. As the United States sought to distance itself from Diem, Nolting was replaced by Henry Cabot Lodge. Mr. Nolting describes the early days of his assignment, including the visit from Vice-President Johnson and the Taylor-Rostow mission. He defends Diem from some of the criticisms that were made of him, and offers opinions of Ngo Dinh Nhu and his wife, Madame Nhu. Mr. Nolting then recalls the debates in the United States regarding Diem, and his own view that the support for Diem should continue. -- taken from Open Vault WGBH Media Library and Archives771ocn827297787visu19830.63Interview with Henry Cabot Lodge, 1979HistoryMilitary historyInterviewsHenry Cabot Lodge was a United States Senator from Massachusetts, and Ambassador to South Vietnam from 1963 -- 1964. He viewed South Vietnam's president Ngo Dinh Diem as an ineffective leader, and tacitly supported the coup that overthrew him. Mr. Lodge discusses the circumstances of his appointment as Ambassador, and his impressions of Vietnam prior to going. He recounts the advice and instruction he received from other advisers, especially regarding Diem, and details his role in the events surrounding the coup. He describes Diem's personality and his own view of the war after the coup. -- taken from Open Vault WGBH Media Library and Archives621ocn056202335visu20040.19Vietnam, a television historyHistoryRoots of war: Examines the period of French colonial domination of Vietnam and the rise of Ho Chi Minh toward the end of World War II.
