About This Item

Bangkok: Asia Books, 2003. Trade Paperback. First Edition. Fine. Inscribed by Author, otherwise pristine inside and out. Not from a library. No remainder mark. 296 pages.


Brett Dakin spent two years working in Laos and returned to the States a changed man. In Another Quiet American, he takes you through the corridors of power and the living rooms of the poor in Laos. You'll meet his boss, a wealthy general whose power and reputation scares his countrymen; a prince with connections to the French colonial past; an American pilot who left home for Indochina during the war and never returned; and, rich Lao twenty-somethings who have all the money they could want, but no happiness. Dakin provides a sympathetic yet irreverent glimpse into life in one of the world's few remaining communist nations, questioning the U.S.'s influence on the country and embarking on the soul-searching identity quest of an American abroad.
