Spreading democracy takes more than cutting-edge military hardware. Winning the hearts and minds of a troubled nation is a special mission we give to bewildered young soldiers who can’t speak the native language, don’t know the customs, can’t tell friends from enemies, and–in this wonderfully outrageous Iraq-era novel about Vietnam–wonder why they have to risk their lives spraying peanut plants, inoculating pigs, and hauling miracle rice seed for Ho Chi Minh. Brash, eye-opening, and surprisingly comic, Of Rice and Men displays the same irreverent spirit as the black-comedy classics Catch-22 and MASH–as it chronicles the American Army’s little known “Civil Affairs” soldiers who courageously roam hostile war zones, not to kill or to destroy, but to build, to feed, and to heal. Unprepared, uncertain, and naive, they find it impossible to make the skeptical population fall in love with them. But it’s thrilling to watch them try. Among the unforgettable characters: Guy Lopaca, an inept Army-trained interpreter who can barely say “I can’t speak Vietnamese” in Vietnamese, but has no trouble chatting with stray dogs and water buffalo. Guy’s friends include “Virgin Mary” Crocker, a pragmatic nurse earning a fortune spending nights with homesick soldiers; Paul Gianelli, a heroic builder of medical clinics who doesn’t want to be remembered badly, so he never goes home; and Tyler DeMudge, whose cure for every problem is a chilly martini, a patch of shade, and the theory that every bad event in life is “good training” for enduring it again. Pricelessly funny, disarming, thought-provoking, as fresh as the morning headlines, and bursting with humor, affection, and pride, Of Rice and Men is a sincere tribute to those young men and women, thrust into our hearts-and-minds wars, who try to do absolute good in a hopeless situation.

Includes The Prisoners Of War In Japanese Hands During World War Two pack with 130 photos, plans and photos. This is the harrowing prisoner of war tale of T/Sgt. Bob Reynolds, who was based Del Carmen airfield in the Philippines when the Second World War broke out. Overrun like many of his fellow Americans by the invading Japanese army, his hellish existence carried him through the Bataan Death March and prison camps in Cabanatuan and Lipa. He tells his amazing story vividly and telling details of the human suffering inflicted on his comrades and the native Filipinos. “In the following pages, I have endeavored to delineate that period which, from a viewpoint of National pride, is perhaps one of the darkest periods of humiliation in the history of our United States—the years of Japanese captivity of American troops from the fall of Bataan to V-J Day. The experiences narrated in the following chapters are mine alone. Encounters of other prisoners not actually witnessed by me have been omitted. Having in mind the interest of readers whose loved ones may have perished on Bataan, or Corregidor, or during the appalling years of Japanese imprisonment, I have avoided using the names of all persons. The expression “Buddy,” “Friend,” or “Fellow” represents in respective cases someone’s son, brother, husband or sweetheart from whom I have endeavored to withhold any heartbreaking particularization. Many of the instances recounted herein may appear gruesome and vulgar; but in the interest of the future of the Nation and in memory of the heroic men who did not return I believe the story should be told.”-The Author’s Foreword

Of Mice and Men: Animals in Human Culture is a book-length collection of essays that examines human views of non-human animals. The essays are written by scholars from Australia, East Asia, Europe and the Americas, who represent a wide range of disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Addressing topics such as animal rights, ecology, anthropocentrism, feminism, animal domestication, dietary restrictions, and cultural imperialism, the book considers local and global issues as well as ancient and contemporary discourses, and it will appeal to readers with both general and specialized interests in the role played by animals in human cultures.
