Vietnam Today: A Conversation with Prof. Ngo Vinh Long

Irvine -- What is the situation in Vietnam today since the socialist country opened up to limited free enterprise and seeks to join the WTO?

On Subversity today, now airing on Tuesdays at 4-5 p.m., we chat with historian Ngo Vinh Long, who teaches at University of Maine, Orono. Dr. Ngo is a long-time anti-war activist who came to the U.S. in the sixties to attend Harvard. On landing at Boston's Airport, he spoke out against U.S. imperialism, and subsequently became a key figure in the anti-war movement, as a co-founder of the Committee of Concerned Asian Scholars, which published the Bulletin of Concerned Asian Scholars. He was last on Subversity in early 2001 after being interviewed in Hanoi where he was a Fulbright Scholar last year. This latest interview was conducted in Maine last month by show host Dan Tsang.

Dr. Ngo, who spent the 2000-2001 academic year in Vietnam, offers his analysis of post-Doi Moi Vietnam and its impact, especially, on the education system there.

The show airs today from 4-5 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 fm in Orange County, California, and is Web-cast simultaneously via We'll also be posting the program on RealAudio subsequently.

Thanx for all your generous support during KUCI's recent fund drive.
