In "Indochina Now and Then," George Fetherling recounts several 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 has searched 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 sort that native Frenchmen and Frenchwomen sent home to Europe.

The book is illustrated with 60 such images taken before the First World War. They evoke vanished ways of life in these exotic lands of charm and cruelty - countries that have survived the wars and turmoil of the late twentieth century to emerge, smiling enigmatically, as the friendly face of free-market socialism. In its prose and pictures, "Indochina Now and Then" is a travel narrative that leaves an indelible impression in the reader's imagination.
