Talalay, Kathryn
Composition in Black and White: The Life of Philippa Schuyler

A pianist and composer at the age of four, Philippa Schuyler was often compared to Mozart. In the 1930s and 40s, she graced the pages of Time and Look and grew up under the adoring gaze of an entire nation. She was the role model and inspiration for a generation of African-American children, but as an adult she mysteriously dropped out of sight, leaving her fans to wonder what had happened to "that little Harlem genius."  This book tells about her incredible life which ended in a helicopter crash in Vietnam during the war.

Templer, Robert
Shadows and Wind : A View of Modern Vietnam

The Communist government's schizophrenic economic policies, combined with a generation gap between the ruling party and the younger Vietnamese, have resulted in a people with little confidence in the government to better their lives. Templer profiles the role of the government in economic and cultural policies that are keeping Vietnam a backward country. Most interestingly, though, he examines the role of the determined Vietnamese people as they make inroads through tiny gaps in public policies to grow food in rural areas, build a life in the cities, and try to maintain their culture and religion.
