Vietnam, 1968-1976 free pdf Avec ses quelque trois millions de morts civils et militaires, et ses innombrables destructions materielles, la guerre dite du Vietnam reste a ce jour une des plus grandes tragedies humaines depuis 1945. Une reflexion sur les conditions politiques, diplomatiques et militaires dans lesquelles s'est effectuee la sortie de la guerre, entre 1968, annee de l'ouverture des negociations americano-vietnamiennes a Paris, et 1976, date de la reunification administrative du Vietnam, semble d'autant plus opportune que grandit actuellement l'inquietude sur les perspectives de l'apres-guerre en Afghanistan. Inspires d'un colloque international reuni a Paris, en 2008, les textes rassembles ici par Pierre Journoud et Cecile Menetrey-Monchau abordent cette etape de la sortie de guerre principalement sous l'angle diplomatique, mais debordant largement le spectre diplomatique traditionnel. Quelques-uns des meilleurs specialistes croisent ici leur analyse de cette phase finale de la guerre, revenant sur les negociations qui ont mis fin a la dimension americano-vietnamienne du conflit, avec l'Accord de Paris du 27 janvier 1973, avant que les armes ne tranchent l'autre guerre, celle entre Vietnamiens, le 30 avril 1975. Ce livre est accompagne d'un DVD avec des temoignages inedits sur les coulisses des negociations de Paris qui ont mis fin a la guerre du Vietnam (1968-1973). With its three million civilian and military casualties and the enormous material destruction it brought about, the Vietnam War remains one of the worst human tragedies since 1945. Growing uncertainty about the potential post-war situation in Afghanistan has renewed interest in the political, diplomatic and military conditions that brought about the end of the Vietnam War - the period covered by the opening of Vietnamese-American negotiations in Paris in 1968 up to the administrative reunification of Vietnam in 1976. The texts collected in this volume by Pierre Journoud and Cecile Menetrey-Monchau, first inspired from an international colloquium held in Paris in 2008, analyse the full range of exit strategies exploited during this period. Although written primarily from a diplomatic perspective, the focus of this publication extends well beyond the traditional realm of diplomacy. Some of the most eminent specialists present their analysis of the final phase of the war, and re-examine the negotiations which brought the Vietnamese-American phase of the conflict to an end with the Paris Agreement of January 27, 1973, before the other war, between the Vietnamese themselves, was decided by the force of arms on April 30, 1975. Provided with this book is a DVD with new testimonies on the Paris Peace negotiations that ended the Vietnam War (1968-1973).
