the Ugly American is about men and women in Southeast Asia - ....trapped by the beauty of a land or of a woman, ...Here is an ambassador who refuses to learn the language or the personality of the country to which he is assigned: a Catholic priest who wages a lonely, victorious battle against Communism on its own ground; an ugly engineer who works productive miracles with lengths of bamboo and a old bicycle; a Navy captain sapped of his effectiveness by the skill with which a Chinese girl  plays upon his vanity.
