In Indochina Now and Then, George Fetherling recounts multiple
journeys through Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, keeping an eye peeled
and an ear cocked for whatever faint traces of French rule might
remain. While doing so he searches diligently in village markets,
curio shops, and rubbish bins, not to mention bookstalls along the
Seine in Paris, for early picture postcards of Southeast Asia, the

enigmatically, as the friendly face of free-market socialism. In
its prose and pictures, Indochina Now and Then is a travel
narrative that will leave an indelible impression in the reader's
