The David W. P. Elliott Collection of Vietnamese Studies

David W. P. Elliott is H. Russell Smith Professor of International Relations and Politics, in the Politics Department of Pomona College in Claremont, California, and author of “The Vietnamese War” and “Changing Worlds.” Professor Elliott spent many years in Vietnam during the Vietnam War era performing academic research for his own studies as well as for the RAND Corporation. During this time, he acquired a large collection of original books in the Vietnamese language covering a wide range of topics, from literature, to politics, history, economics, ethnography, anthropology, and sociology. Most were published in South Vietnam. Some, acquired in Hong Kong, were published by the National Liberation Front for South Vietnam or by the North. After the war, he returned to Vietnam, and was able to acquire many books published in North Vietnam during the war and after. A small number of publications are in English or French. This is a collection, now unavailable as original publications, that reflects the war period and encompasses both sides of the conflict in Vietnam. The rest represent retrospective works on the war North and South, or reflect conditions in Vietnam following the war.
