William Oliver Stone (born September 15, 1946) is an American filmmaker, director, writer, and has been called a conspiracy theorist. Stone won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay as writer of Midnight Express (1978), and wrote the acclaimed gangster movie Scarface (1983).

After a long period of isolation, Vietnam has begun to open its doors to the rest of the world. The nation has been experiencing an internal liberalization which is causing dramatic changes in economic, social and artistic spheres. Focusing his camera on the daily lives of ordinary people, Lou Dematteis documents a vibrant, rapidly-changing country of over 72 million people.

Photojournalist Dematteis took the photographs in this collection on trips to Vietnam from 1992 to 1995. He chose to photograph ordinary Vietnamese going about their daily lives during a period when their country was opening its doors to foreigners after a long period of isolation. As Dematteis notes in his introduction, many books and motion pictures have "taught us much about the American War in Indochina, but precious little about the Vietnamese people themselves." These photographs give a kaleidoscopic view of the people and places of modern Vietnam. But it is the images of the lingering destruction caused by the war that will move American readers of a certain age: a disabled Vietnamese veteran staring out from his hospital bed, a child suffering from the effects of Agent Orange, an American veteran laying incense on the grave of a former enemy.
