Legacies Library

Legacies Library 

Legacies Library is a new initiative created as a response to the lack of awareness and contents on the Secret War in Laos as well as the broader Vietnam War-era bombings in Cambodia and Vietnam

This initiative will serve as a repository of information in the forms of books, blogs, vlogs, films and oral history to be shared specifically with students and the broader public FREE of charge.

Throughout the year, Legacies Library will host book talks with authors and film screenings followed by discussions with the director or other relevant experts. Funds raised for our Legacies Library will allow us to purchase books, other related materials, and allocate time to develop our own educational content.


Interviews with the Authors from The United States, Southeast Asia, and Historical Memory

This book sheds crucial new light on the epochal US interventions in Southeast Asia after World War II. Antiwar activist Fred Branfman describes the tragic lives of Laotian peasants under US bombing. Cambodia scholar Ben Kiernan and colleague Owen Taylor illuminate the course of Cambodia history after unprecedented US bombing. The book also includes classic works by Noam Chomsky, Nick Turse, and Edward Herman.

Mark Pavlick is an independent editor. He was active in the US movement against the Indochina wars in volunteer work with the Indochina Mobile Education Project and the Indochina Resource Center in Washington, DC.
