Since the U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam and the subsequent political upheaval in the region, more than two million refugees have left Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. What makes this study of the Indochinese refugee problem especially useful is its recognition that their plight is inextricably bound to the national interests of several countries in the region. The author skillfully analyzes the refugee problem in this wider context while not losing sight of the ethical and humanitarian dimensions of the problem.
