Editorial Reviews

Asia Times

“Timeless.”
New Mandala ; Thailand-Laos-Cambodia Group

“The work’s success in bringing clarity to its analysis of that attack owes much to its long neglected social science, to Jeffrey Race.”
The American Interest

“I’ve gotten more out of re-reading War Comes to Long An . . . than just about anything other than Robert Warburton’s classic memoir, Eighteen Years in the Khyber, 1879–98 (1900).”
