Overview

Even after 25 years in America, former South Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Cao Ky is regarded as a national hero by three million fellow expatriots. He travels widely in the US and abroad, and is recognized and applauded by former US servicemen, to whom he remains a charismatic and admirable figure.

Buddha's Child will flood the shadowy corners of South Vietnam's Byzantine political world with the bright light of truth. Ky will describe the Americans and their activities from the perspective of the Vietnamese patriot.

Condemned by US Defense Secretary Robert McNamara as "the absolute bottom of the barrel," Ky was not expected to survive a week in the office into which he was thrust. Instead, he lasted three years, until he wrote himself out of office by penning the country's first constitution.
