Ho Ho Ho Chi Minh
“It is a sign of wisdom to negotiate instead of fighting” spoke Ho Chí Minh, Vietnamese revolutionary and politician. He died in 1969 during the Vietnam War and did not live to see the withdrawal of the American invaders and the reunification of his beloved homeland. As prime minister and president until his death, he determined the destiny of his country, whose peopleaffectionately called him Uncle Ho. Influenced by deep Marxist-Leninist convictions, he became a worldwide symbol of the striving for self-determination. Even today, gratitude for this is omnipresent in the Vietnamese population. The book is a collection of selected quotes from Ho Chí Minh juxtaposed with Michael Herman’s expressive photographs of modern Vietnam.
