History that I have had no part in making, defines who I am as a Vietnamese Australian/Australian Vietnamese. Cold War theories and policies that have resulted in my fortunate life here in Australia, means that I have gained from the misfortunes of war.
This work is an investigation into my being and that of a generation born following the Vietnam War. It analyses the relationship between those who determine war and those who have been forced to live with its consequences.
This work reinterprets 'Domino Theory' through the key figures of Communism and the Vietnam War. It focuses on how this conflict was realised in relation to the theory that prompted the actions of the West.
