Synopsis

Ho Chi Minh Down with Colonialism! by Walden Bello

In this volume in the new Revolutions series, anti-globalization activist Walden Bello shows why Ho Chi Minh should still be read by anti-colonialists the world over. Ho Chi Minh (1890-1969), the founder of the Vietminh and President of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, was the archetypical Communist and anti-colonial revolutionary of the twentieth century. He played a key role in the formation of the French, Chinese, and Vietnamese Communist movements and fought successfully against Japanese, French and American imperialism, becoming a hate-figure of the American state during the Vietnam War. Anti-globalization activist Walden Bello shows why Ho Chi Minh should still be read by anti-colonialists the world over.
