    This fascinating and engrossing book should be read by anyone with an interest in the Vietnam War, Southeast Asia and Australia's relations with the region.

    It offers exciting behind-the-scenes insights into:
    · The Vietnam War and its strategic importance to the region
    · Ted Serong, the CIA and the Phoenix Program in Vietnam
    · The Rise and Fall of Soeharto
    · Bob Santamaria, the Pacific Institute and the Asia Pacific Community
    · The growth of regional co-operation leading to ASEAN and APEC
    · Democratisation and the Rise of Radical Islam
    · And Much More

    Follow Frank through the war zones of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, guerrilla-infested areas of Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines and the exotic capitals of the region.

    "I was totally my own boss," says Frank. "Santamaria in effect handed me a bag full of money and said 'go and report'." Ted Serong said hubristically: "I'll run the war, you run the politics, keep me informed, and build the regional Southeast Asian architecture."
