Summary
"A Gift of Barbed Wire is a penetrating look at the lives of South Vietnamese officials and their families left behind in Vietnam after the fall of Saigon in 1975. A former marine who served in Vietnam, Robert S McKelvey went on to practice psychiatry, and through his work in refugee camps and U.S. social service organizations, he met South Vietnamese men from all walks of life who had been imprisoned in reeducation camps immediately after the war. McKelvey's interviews with these former political prisoners, their wives, and their children reveal the devastating long-term effects of their incarceration." --
