    The story of the Vietnam War is a complicated one, and one that I still find a little confusing myself. Author Albert Marrin must have found it equally so. As he writes in his introduction, although he lived during the war and had actively followed the news at the time, he ended up spending months - even years - researching for this book, reading hundreds of books, articles, and personal accounts of the war, as well as interviewing men who had served during the war. And I believe that the results of so much research were well worth the effort and go a long way in helping readers better understand the conflict itself, as well as the bigger picture. To help readers get a feel for the country and its people, Marrin starts his story back at the early settlement of Vietnam, and the long-continuing struggle of the Vietnamese to remain independent from their Northern neighbor, China. He continues his story with the French colonization of the area, the spread of Communism into Vietnam, the "splitting" of Vietnam into two general parts, and all the developments in between and beyond that attributed to the buildup of the war. Marrin's writing is absorbing, full of details that make it seem as if readers were there, and is almost hard to put down. Occasional maps and black-and-white photos add visual interest as well. Overall, a thorough and well-written account of what is often thought of as a somewhat "uncomfortable" topic in our history. - Jess

The family endures many hardships on their long trip across the sea.

This tale of one girl's courage, determination, and hope for a better life in the face of great danger and injustice is truly inspiring.

    That's a good question in itself, but there are a lot of other questions about Vietnam that most people don't fully understand, even today. Like what was the U.S. was trying to achieve by involving itself? Why did the U.S. commit so many of its resources to Vietnam? And how did a poorly-equipped guerilla army defeat the U.S.'s efforts? Author Mitch Yamasaki, a professor and historian, attempts to answer these questions in a surprisingly compact book. First, he offers the reader an overview on the history of Vietnam and its people, from Vietnam's first settlements to the Vietnam War. Then, he examines fifteen historical documents related to the war, spanning the terms of presidents Roosevelt to Johnson. For each document, the purpose, circumstances, and time of the document are introduced, to give students a frame of reference, followed by the featured document, so students can read it for themselves. In the last part of the book, the author examines five interpretations for U.S. involvement in Vietnam, drawing on quotes and excerpts from books and historical documents in support of each viewpoint. A bibliography with suggestions for additional reading is also included. With an emphasis on primary documents and succinct but authoritative information surrounding each, this is an excellent, fact-based place to start any reading on the Vietnam War. There's a lot of food for thought here, surprisingly packed into 64 pgs. - Jess

    Just so you know – I'm not particularly an art person. However, I do like to understand the interrelationships between historical events and culture. This book bridges an amazing gap – historical events and art history. Designed to be a brief survey of art (from 1830 to 1970) it functions as an art history, an art appreciation, and an art techniques (doing art) course. Not to mention the insights it provides into the people and places covered in the history course. This not-particularly-an-art-person is totally impressed!

    Each of the 16 lessons covers an art history period – romanticism through psychedelic art and tie dye – with impressionism, expressionism, modernism, and surrealism among others in between. Each lesson starts with an overview of the history and art of the time period. The succinct coverage is augmented by suggested web links/books/videos but there are also full-color reproductions (in various sizes) of period works included in the book. Sidebar information includes research questions and learning objectives rounding out the instruction. The lesson then moves into the doing art portion with clearly stated assignments, lists of needed supplies, student and author examples, and step-by-step illustrations. For instance, Lesson 5 is Art Nouveau and Symbolism (an ism I missed earlier) which is coordinated with the BF lessons on The Jungle and teaches us that Art Nouveau was an attempt to apply a new look to all of the applied arts while Symbolism was dramatically different – artists defining their art with dramatic emotions rather than story telling. Among the developments of the period; posters became a fine art medium for the first time. The activity for this lesson is designing a decorative initial in the Art Nouveau style.

    Help is available for the young artist (and/or his teacher). The KnoodleU.com website (book purchaser is entitled to access) contains tutorials, resources, tips, quizzes and even mid-term exams. Use of the DK book, Art, is suggested to augment the lessons and provide additional visuals (there's some nudity in the DK book and the author addresses this question helpfully and cautiously). A very helpful timeline that includes world events, art events, art projects and the BF book list is provided.

    Easily a stand-alone art class – or more by just adding the BF books as read alongs, this a perfect complement to the entire Beautiful Feet course and will provide the student with an excellently rounded-out history/humanities course. 65 pgs, spiral-bound ~ Janice

    While not quite a history book in its own right, this is a fascinating look at the Vietnam War. Each left-hand page describes a particular aspect of the war, like Yankee Station, the tunnels, the nature of small-unit combat, the Tet Offensive, politics on the home front, and atrocities committed – by both sides. Most of these are one page, though some go on to the next left-hand page, with four to five paragraph points. Every right hand page is completely filled with a picture. Some of them are informational – pictures of bunkers thought to be nuclear launch sites, generals' meetings, and troop columns. Others touch the personal side of the war – a soldier with both an M-16 and a guitar strapped across his back, a wounded soldier waiting to be taken away from Hamburger Hill, a paratrooper carrying a young boy, or an honor guard watching as flag-draped coffins are unloaded from a transport plane. There aren't any gruesome pictures, but there are, of course, discussions of casualties and deaths. Besides the main text, a small "Quick Facts" block gives additional information. An excellent look at the war and the men and women that fought it. Hc, 128 pgs. ~ Mark
