Against the intrigue and violence of Vietman during the French War with the Vietminh, Alden Pyle, an idealistic young American, is sent to promote democracy, as his freind, Fowler, a cynical foreign correspondent looks on. Fowler''s mistress, a beautiful native girl, creates a catalyst for jealousy and competition between the men and a cultural clash resultiing in bloodshed and deep misgivings.Written in 1955, The Quiet American foreshadows the events leading up to America''s Vietman conflict. Questions surrounding the moral ambiguity of the involvement of the United States in foreign countries are as relevant today as they were 50 years ago.
