Book made in Vietnam, Hanoi, 1973. The Paris Peace Accords officially titled the Agreement on Ending the War and Restoring Peace in Viet Nam, was a peace treaty signed on January 27, 1973, to establish peace in Vietnam and end the Vietnam War.
The treaty included the governments of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam), the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam), and the United States, as well as the Republic of South Vietnam (PRG) that represented South Vietnamese communists.
The Paris Agreement Treaty would in effect remove all remaining US Forces, including air and naval forces. Direct U.S. military intervention was ended, and fighting between the three remaining powers temporarily stopped for less than a day. The agreement was not ratified by the United States Senate.
This book once belonged to Andries Oele. Inside the books you’ll find the signature of him. Oele was a well-known and notorious radical Maoist in the 1970’s in the city of Rotterdam, The Netherlands. He always stood out by standing at the back of a hall at meetings and public gatherings (such as May 1 celebrations) and shouting his slogans (“Death to capital! Long live Marxism-Leninism! Long live Chairman Mao!”). While the many small communist splinter groups were happy with any soul they could recruit, they would rather lose Andries than get rich. Nevertheless he was a member of KORO (Communist Organization Rotterdam and Surroundings).
Andries Oele worked in construction so the left-wing intellectual Rotterdam got some appreciation for this: a real worker, after all.
In 1977 Oele was caught in bed with someone’s wife. Her deceived husband immediately took a gun and shot both Andries and his own wife. A double murder. A Dutch Maoist publisher was asked to clean out Oele’s house.
Behind the frontdoor he found a wonderful house that had been completely renovated as if it were a ship’s cabin. You had to duck to go inside and could look through portholes to other dark spaces. He collected all Oele’s books, almost entirely Marxist-Leninist works and works by old Dutch socialists, such as Troelstra and Domela Nieuwenhuis.
