Ken Knabb is an American writer, translator, and radical theorist, best known for his translations of Guy Debord and the Situationist International. Please join us in celebrating his publication of Ngo Van's "IN THE CROSSFIRE: Adventures of a Vietnamese Revolutionary" (AK Press).
"Although the Vietnam War is still well known, few people are aware of the decades of struggles against the French colonial regime that preceded it, many of which had no connection with the Stalinists (Ho Chi Minh’s Communist Party). The Stalinists were ultimately victorious, but only after they systematically destroyed all the other oppositional currents.
This book is the story of those other movements and revolts, caught in the crossfire between the French and the Stalinists, told by one of the few survivors" -http://www.bopsecrets.org/vietnam/index.htm
