Abstract

South Vietnam…shows that in the underdeveloped countries today reactionary regimes, no matter how lavishly equipped and "advised" by the United States, cannot win wars against dedicated revolutionary guerrillas. This is not the place to attempt to assess the implications of this momentous fact. We only record our conviction that its significance will loom larger and larger as the years go by and that in retrospect the struggle in South Vietnam will be recognized as one of the turning points of the history of the second half of the twentieth century. - Paul A. Baran and Paul M. Sweezy, Monopoly Capital (1966), pp. 203-204.
