<i>Vietnam Inc.</i>
Vietnam Inc.
by Philip Jones Griffiths
First published in 1971, Vietnam Inc. by Philip Jones Griffiths was instrumental in changing public opinion in the United States about the Vietnam War. The book is the result of three years’ work and is one of the most detailed accounts of any conflict. Griffiths shows the sheer horror of the war as well as rural life in Vietnam, unveiling an argument against the caustic modern war machine and U.S. imperialism. This week marks the anniversary of the “end” of the Vietnam War, with the signing of the Paris Accords in 1973.

In this week’s Zoom In, Magnum and Slate remember Auschwitz.
