Vietnam: 25 Years Later

Robert Scalapino is Robson Research Professor of Government and director of the Institute of East Asian Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. He is also editor of Asian Survey, a scholarly, monthly publication that circulates throughout the U.S. and abroad.

Dr. Scalapino has written numerous books and articles on Asian politics and U.S.-Asian policy. His most recent books are Asia and the Road Ahead (1975), The Foreign Policy of Modern Japan (1977), The United States and Korea: Looking Ahead (1979), The Japanese Communist Movement, 1920-1966 (1967), Modern China and Its Revolutionary Process (1985), and Major Power Relations in Northeast Asia (1987).

Dr. Scalapino has visited Vietnam many times since 1958. He believes that the devastating and tragic results that one sees in Vietnam today are the outcome of the non-communists losing the war, and that U.S. policies contributed to that loss.

Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum

The Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum was conceived as a place where students and faculty could gather for intellectual discourse in an intimate and relaxed setting and integrate their academic and social lives. Public programs are scheduled Monday through Thursday during the academic year and are publicized through the bi-weekly newsletter, The Fortnightly.

While events are primarily for students, the Athenaeum hosts lunches, dinners, and receptions for academic classes, student organizations, and official functions of the College.
