Postwar Vietnam: Dilemmas in Socialist Development

Author: 
David G. Marr and Christine P. White, eds.
Publication Year: 
1988
Publication Number: 
SEAPS 03

This compilation of essays comes from a Joint Committee on Southeast Asia and the Social Science Research Council conference (the theme of which was Tradition and Revolution). The papers selected for this anthology concentrate upon domestic questions, economic policies, and, most importantly, upon socialist development and ideology. They take for their subject matter such varied topics as education, economics (since the Vietnamese hope for the establishment of immediate large-scale socialism has long since dissolved into various economic crises and adaptations), the role of the military, questions of leadership, and economic assistance and humanitarian aid. Authors include Susanne Rubin, Melanie Beresford, Max Spoor, and Carlyle A. Thayer.
