Hanoi. After the War is a touching portrait of Vietnam after the war, experienced through the eyes of a foreign observer and the voices of Vietnamese writers, telling a story of hardship, poverty and endurance, but also of an ancient culture, of a brave and resilient people, of beauty amidst austerity.
Photographer John Ramsden, Deputy Head of the British Embassy in Hanoi from 1980 to 1982, guides readers through poignant accounts of an unforgettable time and place, illustrated by stunning photographs that provide a faithful record of a remarkable time and place.
“The Hanoi I knew after the war – a subdued place, though of wistful beauty – is now a booming modern city. This is a journey back in time, to a city exhausted by forty years of conflict…bitter-sweet memories of a time which now seems vanishingly distant.” – Jon Ramsden
