Vietnam Inc. is a photographic book produced by Philip Jones Griffiths and published in 1971 by Collier Books in New York, in both hard and soft back. It contains 266 black and white photographs most with captions, sympathetic to the civilian perspective of the South Vietnamese people during the Vietnam War. The photographs were taken between 1966 and 1971, some originally shot in 35mm colour slide format and converted to black and white. These gritty, sometimes shocking pictures were described by the New York Times[1] as "The closest we are ever going to come to a definitive photo-journalistic essay on the war." The original hardback book has become a collector's item. Vietnam Inc. was republished in 2001 by Phaidon with a foreword by Noam Chomsky.
