This review is from: Point of Departure (Experiment in Biography) (Paperback)
James Cameron has been an inspiration to me over many years and this book, along with others I have collected, signposts you to report writing of such style and substance that it makes the present day hacks look one dimensional. His visit to Vietnam neatly sums up his integrity and compassion.With wry understatement, he outs America as being over wrought and over sensitive to what was essentially as country fighting for its right to govern itself in whatever way it chose. You are left with the feeling that Cameron is not anti American but determined to uncover its naked ambition in this most futile of wars. The book is an evocation of a different age when the foreign correspondent actually could make a difference.
