Viet Nam : Borderless Histories, Paperback / softback Book


Moving beyond past histories of Viet Nam that have focused on nationalist struggle, this volume brings together work by scholars who are re-examining centuries of Vietnamese history.

Crossing borders and exploring ambiguities, the essays in ""Viet Nam: Borderless Histories"" draw on international archives and bring a range of inventive analytical approaches to the global, regional, national, and local narratives of Vietnamese history.

Among the topics explored are the extraordinary diversity between north and south, lowland and highland, Viet and minority, and between colonial, Chinese, Southeast Asian, and dynastic influences.

The result is an exciting new approach to Southeast Asia's past that uncovers the complex and rich history of Viet Nam.
