“... a real program of social and economic reform [in Vietnam] would have involved a real conflict ... between the peasants ... and the landlords and the city people... [it] was difficult ... because it required a concern for the peasants ... it was those capacities ... its American supporters lacked.”
Frances FitzGerald, Fire in the Lake: The Vietnamese and the Americans in Vietnam

“Americans see history as a straight line and themselves standing at the cutting edge as representatives for all mankind.”
Frances FitzGerald

“In his failure Nhu had withdrawn so far into himself that in the end his face was a mask that no longer opened onto the real world.”
Frances FitzGerald, Fire in the Lake: The Vietnamese and the Americans in Vietnam
