9780020493617: Brother Enemy: The War After the War
From Publishers Weekly:

Chanda, Washington bureau chief for Far Eastern Economic Review, traces the steps by which the Third Indochina War became intertwined with the Soviet-American rivalry and the Sino-American alliance. The book reveals in detail how close Washington came in 1977 to establishing ties with Hanoi and why President Carter shelved the issue. Chanda presents a startling and well-supported explanation for the Cambodian massacres: a Khmer Rouge decision that Cambodian revolutionary power had to be built at breakneck speed by means of ideological "purification" to prepare for the inevitable life-or-death struggle against the Vietnamese. He goes on to show that the Khmer Rouge sought to preempt the invasion by taking the war to Vietnam itself, upsetting not only Hanoi's timetable but that of Peking as well. Chanda notes that Vietnam, once a hero of the Third World, has become an international pariah, largely due to Hanoi's policy toward Cambodia.

From Library Journal:

Chanda, long-time Southeast Asia correspondent for the Far Eastern Economic Review , now stationed in Washington, stayed on in Indochina after the Americans turned away from what once seemed worth dying for. With the fall of Saigon in 1976, the socialist brothers (China and Vietnam) began the "war after the war," while Cambodia began a crazed battle against history, preferring for a while to commit suicide rather than submit to Vietnamese control. Chanda knew most of the people who mattered on all sides, and presents their struggle with clarity and affecting energy. He also analyzes American and Russian attempts to fish in these troubled waters. Essential reading for all who want to understand the state of play in this still strategic part of the world and therefore recommended for all current events collections. Charles W. Hayford, History Dept., Northwestern Univ., Evanston, Ill.
