Kwon, Heonik (2008) The ghosts of the American war in Vietnam. The Asia Pacific Journal: Japan focus . ISSN 1557-4660
The spiritual remains of the unknown war dead take on a vital presence in popular Vietnamese religious culture and their everyday ritual life. They are also a powerful means of historical narration and reflection in contemporary Vietnam. This article introduces some of their vigorous actions and claims for social justice, and explores how we can make sense of their existence in the terms of sociology of religion.
