An index to two valuable sources relating to Vietnamese history, literature and
culture. The Vietnam Forum (now The Vie^.t Nam Forum) is a
periodical. Fourteen volumes have been published (1983-1994). Begun in 1984,
La.c Vie^.t is a monograph series with fifteen works published. Huy`nh Sanh
Tho^ng, a well-know translator and scholar, started the La.c Vi^.t series and Dan Duffy has continued it. Because many Forum articles and La.c Vie^.t volumes make excellent reading for courses on the war, this index will be an important aid for teachers and researchers.
