8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these pages are the Vietnamese and Cambodians that the American tourist never see, never hear about. Here are the results of the US spraying Agent Orange over these countries." "Never has its effects on humans been so clearly shown as in this book by Philip Jones Griffiths, one of the great photographers of the war, who feels we should see what Agent Orange has done. It is almost unbearable, but to turn away and not see the photographs is to compound the crime."--Jacket
Viêtnam at peace by Philip Jones Griffiths( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Viet Nam At Peace is the monumental chronicle of a country struggling to emerge from the apocalyptic destruction of war, a destruction so seismic that it was thought vainly by many to be the end of all contemporary imperial aggression. It is Tolstoyan in its reach and emotional responses. Philip Jones Griffiths, the author of Vietnam Inc. and Agent Orange: Collateral Damage in Viet Nam, has visited Viet Nam 25 times since the end of the war. The first Westerner to travel by road from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City after the war, and later the Ho Chi Minh trail, he has amassed an unparalleled photographic record of the post-war transformation of the country. From the first days of terrible hardships, as the joys of victory were quickly tempered by the reality of the extent of the destruction wreaked by the war, and the crippling effects of the US embargo, he has recorded an uncomfortably comprehensive view of the aftermath of war. This is not simply a record of shattered landscapes; it is also a record of the shattered hearts and minds, culture and hopes. He has witnessed the limbless heroes, the Amerasian children, the boat people, and the re-emergence of the social problems of prostitution and drug addiction as the country embraces consumerism. Equally, here are recognised the horrified attempts by the Vietnamese themselves to curb the hydra of its worst excesses

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Founded as a unique cooperative in 1947 by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, David Seymour, and George Rodger, Magnum Photos was created to give photographers the freedom and independence to work outside of the restrictive formulas of commercial journalism. Today the agency runs offices in London, Paris, New York, and Tokyo, and resolutely resists sensationalism. Its owner/members are recognized as the premier photographers in the world. The film examines the history and accomplishments of this groundbreaking institution. Although the non-commercial principles upon which Magnum is founded are difficult to adhere to in trying financial times, the archive of this remarkable and resilient agency continues to grow
