North Vietnam might be called an unknown enemy. For years Americans have been in combat with a country that has remained - perhaps by design - merely an abstraction. This is the first book to be published in the United States which shows the country as it is.
Freed from many national inhibitions, Marc Riboud made several trips to North Vietnam and recorded what he saw. Here, in a beautiful little country, are peasant on farms, city workers, schools, religious institutions, factories, shops, old people and young lovers.
