Product description

Review

- "I consider Scorched Earth to be the Silent Spring of chemical warfare in Vietnam, a powerful clarion call [that brings together] scientific evidence, passionate argument, Vietnamese interviews and documentation, review of the class action suits . . . and new and little known evidence gathered by Vietnamese scholars . . . to form one coherent argument." --Dr. John Marciano, Vietnam scholar, and professor emeritus, State University of New York-Cortland
- "A fascinating and compelling book on the effects on the Vietnamese people of the Agent Orange defoliation campaign during the Vietnam War, a personal, impassioned account on the part of the victims, a fascinating and at times shocking tale of an important and unresolved episode in American history." --Dr. Michael Viola, director, Medicine for Peace, and retired chair, oncology department, State University of New York-Stonybrook

His book, Waiting for an Army to Die: The Tragedy of Agent Orange, helped break the story of the effects of chemical warfare on US veterans who had served in Vietnam.

Wilcox lives in Ithaca, New York.
