Title: Quagmire (Nation Building and Nature inthe Mekong Delta)
Author: David Biggs
Abstract: In the twentieth century, the Mekong Delta emerged as one of Vietnam's most important economic regions. Its swamps, marshes, creeks, and canals played a major role in Vietnam's turbulent past, from the struggles of colonialism, to the Cold War, and to the present day. Quagmire considers these struggles, their antecedents, and their legacies from the perspective of environmental history.
