Over the past few decades, most representations of the Vietnam War in literature and film tended to concentrate on American and European depictions. This has been mostly a result of the difficulty of obtaining directly visual representations of the Vietnamese side of the conflict because of the cultural and economic embargo the United States imposed. As far as literary depictions go, the current appearance of translated works by publishers such as Curbstone Press and the long involvement of figures such as Lady Borton and Le Ly Hyslip opposing cultural and institutional amnesia has somewhat remedied matters.
