Open-access edition of Footprints of War: Militarized Landscapes in Vietnam, by David Biggs

Footprints of War by David Biggs (FA-57319-13) traces the long history of conflict-produced spaces in Vietnam, from the French colonial invasion in 1885 through the collapse of the Saigon government in 1975. The result is a richly textured history of militarized landscapes that reveals the spatial logic and social impact of key battles. It also explores how the militarized landscapes here, as in many historic conflict zones, continue to shape post-war land-use politics. We published a hardcover edition in 2018 and propose to publish an open-access edition with a Creative Commons license. We will post it on leading OA repositories including JSTOR, MUSE Open, OAPEN, Internet Archive, and HathiTrust. We are also piloting the Manifold platform, which will enable the author to link additional resources to the book for further research and teaching purposes. We will promote the OA edition at professional conferences and via direct mail and social media. We will pay the author a $500 royalty.
