Dear H-Net Readers,

My book, Number One Realist - Bernard Fall and Vietnamese Revolutionary Warfare (Oxford University Press) is now officially published in the United States and Canada.  The book is available through Hurst and Co. in the United Kingdom, Europe, and Asia.  

Here is the book's description:

Webinar – Cold War Colonialism with Lianne Leddy

In this talk, Lianne Leddy (Wilfrid Laurier University, Canada) will discuss Serpent River First Nation’s resilience in confronting colonial extractive practices during the Cold War period in Canada. Relying on oral and archival research methods, Leddy argues that Anishinaabek responses to the devastating impacts of uranium mining in their territory were framed by a powerful understanding of health and homeland.

The event begins on 30 March at 7:00pm ET. Register HERE.
