From the Publisher"The founder of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam emerges as an appealing but still somewhat enigmatic figure in this impressionistic biography."
"A noted French scholar of colonial and contemporary Vietnam, Brocheux (The Mekong Delta) has written a fascinating account of Ho Chi Minh the man (born Nguyen Sinh Cung in 1890) and 'Uncle Ho' the myth."
-Patti C. McCall, Library Journal
"...the most sensitive treatment of Ho's complex personality, as well as iconic status, that I have read to date. Brocheaux gives us his on interpretation of Ho while avoiding the temptation to extemporize in a quasi-fictional manner."
-David G. Marr, Pacific Affairs
"...a must for anyone fascinated with Southeast Asia and the Vietnam wars." --CHOICE
