A Brief Political and Geographic History of Asia (Where Are Saigon, Kampuchea, and Burma?)
Saigon, Kampuchea, and Burma. These names of places in Asia are like many that once existed but now officially do not. As the times have changed, so have the names, but many of the old labels still live on. To forget them would be to forget the people and events that made those places what they are today.
Readers will find accounts of one city, three countries, and four empires. Unfortunately, much of the history of these places is extremely bloody. Stories of wars, mass killings, executions, and uprisings fill these pages.
However, readers will also find tales of people who stood tall in the middle of all that chaos, destruction, and horror. They may not have always won their battles, but with great courage, they always held out hope for a better future.
