Dr. Dennis D. Wainstock, adjunct faculty member at Fairmont State, has co-authored the new book "Indochina and Vietnam" with Robert Miller. This book will be added to the Library's collection.
Wainstock has taught history at the Gaston Caperton Center in Clarksburg for the past five years. He has also been an instructor at Salem International University (previously Salem-Teikyo University). He received his Ph.D from West Virginia University.
Here is a description of the book from Enigma Books, publisher:
INDOCHINA and VIETNAM is an eminently readable overview of the interlocking conflicts in Southeast Asia from 1940 to the heartbreaking scenes of April 1975, when the last helicopters lurched off from the soon to fall United States embassy in Saigon. The Vietnam reader is usually confronted with voluminous texts, most of them over 500 pages long. The authors have attempted to offer as comprehensive yet manageable an account as possible that would include all the major events, incidents and debates that make up the history of the long Vietnam War as the Vietnamese, the French and Americans knew it.
Wainstock is also the author of "The Decision to Drop the Atomic Bomb: Hiroshima and Nagasaki 1945," "The Turning Point: The 1968 U.S. Presidential Election," "Malcolm X: The Life and Times of an African-American Revolutionary" and "Truman, MacArthur and the Korean War."
