Description

A first-hand account, Nothing Is Impossible: America's Reconciliation with Vietnam tells the stories of heroes, known and unknown, who achieved political and social reconciliation between two former adversaries. Pursuing diplomacy for nearly thirty years under four presidents and seven Secretaries of State, former ambassador Ted Osius knew the Vietnamese and Americans who made reconciliation possible. Osius' stories show that friendship between old enemies is possible. Ideological opponents John McCain and John Kerry championed reconciliation. Pete Peterson, a former prisoner-of-war, became America's first ambassador to Vietnam. As ambassador, Osius showed respect to Vietnam's history, culture and language. A personal narrative full of media-worthy vignettes and revelations, Nothing Is Impossible provides vital insights into diplomacy and into a crucial part of U.S. and Vietnamese history. This book shows the Vietnamese as they are today: full of hope, practical and entrepreneurial, and unreservedly welcoming of Americans.
