Upon completion of a year of Vietnamese language training at the Defense Language Institute, Elliott served with the U.S. Army in Vietnam from 1963-65. In 1965, he joined the Rand Corporation, and supervised part of its "Viet Cong Motivation and Morale Study" in Dinh Tuong province in the Mekong Delta until the end of 1967. During the course of graduate study at Cornell University, he returned to Vietnam to do research in 1971-72 and has returned to Vietnam nine times in the post 1975 period to do research, attend conferences, and participate in educational exchanges. Elliott was a participant in the U.S.-Vietnam Dialogue sponsored by the Aspen Institute and organized by former Senator Dick Clark in the 1980s and early 1990s and accompanied Senator Clark to Vietnam in 1991 for meetings with leading Vietnamese figures.


"Essential reading to understand why and how Vietnam's political elite-forged by revolution, war, and Marxist ideology-altered their thinking and policies to make the dramatic shift to a market economy. An important book."--Richard A. Hunt, author of Pacification: The American Struggle for Vietnam(1)s Hearts and Minds "Changing Worlds is a profound and eloquently written account of changes in Vietnamese elite thinking that led them to abandon communist ideology and 'take the plunge' into the currents of globalization. This work is enhanced by Elliott's command of Vietnamese sources."--Carlyle A. Thayer, Emeritus Professor, The University of New South Wales, Canberra.
