I am writing my dissertation on President Nixon's relationship with South Vietnamese President Nguyen Van Thieu. I was hoping someone could direct me to secondary literature on US-inspired economic reform in South Vietnam, between 1969 and 1975. I've consulted the literature on land reform, but have been unable to find recent material on Saigon's efforts to curb inflation and increase revenues. I've consulted the following literature on economic reform, excluding Thieu's Land-to-the-Tiller Program: Douglas C. Dacy, Foreign Aid, War, and Economic Development: South Vietnam, 1955-1975 (New York: Cambridge University Press, 1986) David W.P. Elliott, The Vietnamese War: Revolution and Social Change in the Mekong Delta, V. 1-2 (Armonk, NY: M.E. Sharpe, 2003) Allan E. Goodman, Politics in War: The Bases of Political Community in South Vietnam (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1973) Gabriel Kolko, Anatomy of a War: Vietnam, the United States, and the Modern Historical Experience (New York: Pantheon Books, 1985) Nguyen Anh Tuan, South Vietnam, Trial and Experience: A Challenge for Development (Athens, OH: Ohio University Center for International Studies, Center for Southeast Asian Studies, 1987) So far, I've been unable to find anything more recent on South Vietnamese economic reforms between 1969 and 1975.
