Half a century later, the contested history of the war in Vietnam continues to elicit national debate, deep soul-searching, and purported lessons for America's role overseas. In a conversation that visits new historical terrain of the Vietnam War past, award-winning historian and former war refugee Lien-Hang T. Nguyen draws on her personal and professional journey researching that war to offer new insights for its significance today.
Lien-Hang T. Nguyen is Dorothy Borg Associate Professor in the History of the United States and East Asia at Columbia University and general editor of the forthcoming Cambridge History of the Vietnam War. David M. Rubenstein (moderator), co-founder and co-executive chairman of the Carlyle Group, is the author of numerous books, including The American Experiment: Dialogues on a Dream.
