Vi T Nam Expos

by Gisèle Luce Bousquet, Vi T Nam Expos Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Vi T Nam Expos books, A collection of essays written on twentieth-century Vietnamese society, Vit Nam Expos is one of only a handful of books written by French scholars for an English-speaking audience. The volume is multidisciplinary and represents a new trend in Vietnamese studies that addresses issues beyond politics, wars, and violence, exploring the complexity of more subtle power relationships in Vietnamese society. The book is divided into three parts. Part I, "Vietnamese Society in the Early Twentieth Century," takes a micro approach to the study of Vietnamese society on the eve of the irreversible social transformation that occurred as the colonial infrastructure took root in Indochina. Part II, "Vietnamese Intellectuals: Contesting Colonial Power," contains biographical accounts of Vietnamese intellectuals who tried to reform their society under colonial domination. Part III, "Post-Colonial Vietnam: From Welfare State to Market-Oriented Economy," traces Vietnam's search for a viable economic model while maintaining itself as a socialist state. The book speaks to diverse themes, including the nature of village life, the development of health care during the colonial era, the status of women, the role of Vietnamese intellectuals in the anticolonial struggle, the building of a socialist state, contemporary rural migration, labor relations, and Vietnam in an age of globalization. Gisele Bousquet is Research Associate at the Center for Southeast Asian Studies, University of California, Berkeley.

Remembering Viet Nam

by Regula Fuchs, Remembering Viet Nam Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Remembering Viet Nam books, How does American culture deal with its memories of the Vietnam War and what role does literature play in this process? Remembering Viet Nam is a fascinating exploration of the ways in which authors of Vietnam War literature represent American cultural memory in their writings. The analysis is based on a wide array of sources including historical, political, cultural and literary studies as well as works on trauma. It begins with an examination of American foundation myths - their normative, formative and, most of all, their bonding nature - and the role institutions such as the military and the media play in upholding these myths. The study then considers the soldiers' and war veterans' minds and bodies and the stories they tell as key sites in the debates over the war's place in American cultural memory. The multilayered approach of Remembering Viet Nam allows the investigation of Vietnam War literature in its whole breadth including the debates instigated by the works examined and the influence these narratives themselves have on American cultural memory. Most importantly, the analysis uncovers why American foundation myths - despite their being thoroughly questioned and even exposed as cultural inventions by authors and reviewers of Vietnam War literature - can still retain their power within American society.

Viet Nam

by Brian Van Arkadie, Viet Nam Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Viet Nam books, Viet Nam has seen consistent rapid economic growth and impressive declines in poverty since it initiated its Doi Moi economic reforms in the late 1980s. Viet Nam has taken a selective, step-by-step approach to reform—an approach often criticised by proponents of the Washington Consensus. That this approach has been so successful has come as something of a surprise to much of the international community. Analysing closely aspects of Viet Nam’s reform process, enterprise development, income growth and poverty alleviation, Viet Nam: a transition tiger? argues that Viet Nam’s remarkable development is not readily explained by the more orthodox versions of the Washington Consensus. Successful policy is not built on mechanistic replication of some general reform blueprint, but on responding pragmatically to specific national circumstances. Government policy has had an impact on economic performance but economic experience has also guided the formulation of economic policy. Faced with increasingly complex economic conditions, Vietnamese policymakers will need to rely more than ever on their flexibility and pragmatism if Viet Nam’s remarkable economic performance is to be sustained.

Aztl N And Viet Nam

by George Mariscal, Aztl N And Viet Nam Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Aztl N And Viet Nam books, Showcasing over sixty short stories, poems, speeches, and articles, Aztlán and Viet Nam is the first anthology of Mexican American writings about the U.S. war in Southeast Asia. The words are startlingly frank, moving, and immensely powerful, as they call to our attention an important and neglected part of U.S. history. Gathered from many little-known sources, the works reflect both the soldiers' experience and the antiwar movement at home. Taken together, they illustrate the contradictions faced by the traditionally patriotic Mexican American community, and show us the war and the grassroots opposition to it from a new perspective—one that goes beyond the familiar dichotomy of black and white America. George Mariscal offers critical introductions and provides historical background by identifying specific issues which have not been widely discussed in relation to the war, noting, for example, the potential for Chicano soldiers to recognize their own ethnic and class identities in those of the Vietnamese people. Drawing upon interviews with key participants in the National Chicano Moratorium Committee, Mariscal analyzes the antiwar movement, the Catholic Church, traditional Mexican American groups, and an emerging feminist consciousness among Chicanas. Also included are personal accounts: Norma Elia Cantú's remembrance of her brother who died in combat, Bárbara Renaud González's evocative poem about Chicanas on the homefront, Alberto Ríos's and Naomi Helena Quiñonez's moving poetry about the Wall, and the recollections of Abelardo Delgado and others on the August 29, 1970 Moratorium.

Fish Marketing And Credit In Viet Nam

by Audun Lem, Fish Marketing And Credit In Viet Nam Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Fish Marketing And Credit In Viet Nam books, Recent studies show that local consumer demand for fish will continue to increase in Viet Nam. At the same time, the export-oriented fish processing industry will see a growing need for raw materials. These substantial future demands for safe and high-quality fish products can only be met if efficient marketing arrangements are established. This paper identifies a number of constraints in the current domestic fish market, which form the basis for recommendations to improve the present marketing arrangements in Viet Nam. The paper also explores how credit is widely used for financing marine capture fisheries, particularly offshore fishing and export-oriented fish culture, processing and marketing in Viet Nam. State-owned financial institutions play a major role in financing capital expenditure while working capital requirements are mainly met by informal sources of credit. However, future investment requirements and credit needs are greater than currently available.

Nationalist In The Viet Nam Wars

by Nguyên Công Luân, Nationalist In The Viet Nam Wars Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Nationalist In The Viet Nam Wars books, “A dark and fascinating tale . . . illuminated by Nguyen’s story of escape from Communist tyranny to the United States in 1990, and by his honesty and integrity, which shine through on every page.” —Historynet.com This extraordinary memoir tells the story of one man’s experience of the wars of Viet Nam from the time he was old enough to be aware of war in the 1940s until his departure for America 15 years after the collapse of South Viet Nam in 1975. Nguyen Cong Luan was born and raised in small villages near Ha Noi. He grew up knowing war at the hands of the Japanese, the French, and the Viet Minh. Living with wars of conquest, colonialism, and revolution led him finally to move south and take up the cause of the Republic of Viet Nam, exchanging a life of victimhood for one of a soldier. His stories of village life in the north are every bit as compelling as his stories of combat and the tragedies of war. This honest and impassioned account is filled with the everyday heroism of the common people of his generation. “Long overdue, this memoir will be a worthy addition to any academic library interested in the tragedy of Vietnam. . . . Essential.” —Choice “An essential read for those who seek to understand the complex tragedy of the wars of Vietnam.” —ARMY
