The Country of Memory - Remaking the Past in Late Socialist Vietnam (Paperback): Hue-Tam Ho Tai The Country of Memory - Remaking the Past in Late Socialist Vietnam (Paperback)

The American experience in the Vietnam War has been the subject of a vast body of scholarly work, yet surprisingly little has been written about how the war is remembered by Vietnamese themselves. "The Country of Memory" fills this gap in the literature by addressing the subject of history, memory, and commemoration of the Vietnam War in modern day Vietnam.
This pathbreaking volume details the nuances, sources, and contradictions in both official and private memory of the War, providing a provocative assessment of social and cultural change in Vietnam since the 1980s. Inspired by the experiences of Vietnamese veterans, artists, authorities, and ordinary peasants, these essays examine a society undergoing a rapid and traumatic shift in politics and economic structure. Each chapter considers specific aspects of Vietnamese culture and society, such as art history, commemorative rituals and literature, gender, and tourism. The contributors call attention to not only the social milieu in which the work of memory takes place, but also the historical context in which different representations of the past are constructed.
Drawing from a variety of sources, such as prison memoirs, commemorative shrines, funerary rituals, tourist sites and brochures, advertisements, and films, the authors piece together the disparate representations of the past in Vietnam. With these rare perspectives, "The Country of Memory" makes an important contribution to debates within postcolonial studies, as well as to the literature on memory, Vietnam, and the Vietnam War.

State, Society and the Market in Contemporary Vietnam - Property, Power and Values (Hardcover): Hue-Tam Ho Tai, Mark Sidel State, Society and the Market in Contemporary Vietnam - Property, Power and Values (Hardcover)

Lively debates around property, access to resources, legal rights, and the protection of livelihoods have unfolded in Vietnam since the economic reforms of 1986. Known as Doi Moi (changing to the new), these have gradually transformed the country from a socialist state to a society in which a communist party presides over a neoliberal economy. By exploring the complex relationship between property, the state, society, and the market, this book demonstrates how both developmental issues and state-society relations in Vietnam can be explored through the prism of property relations and property rights. The essays in this collection demonstrate how negotiations over property are deeply enmeshed with dynamics of state formation, and covers debates over the role of the state and its relationship to various levels of society, the intrusion of global forces into the lives of marginalized communities and individuals, and how community norms and standards shape and reshape national policy and laws. With contributors from around the world, this book will be of great interest to students and scholars of East and Southeast Asian studies, including politics, culture, society, and law, as well as those interested in the role of the state and property relations more generally.

The events of the 1920s and 1930s were crucial in the evolution of modern Vietnam. Yet our knowledge of this complex period of student strikes, revolt against the patriarchal family, debates on women's emancipation, and the search for a new worldview to replace the bankrupt Confucian ideology has been distorted by a preoccupation with the eventual establishment of a Communist regime there. In focusing on the strikes of the mid-1920s, which triggered student travel to France and China and swelled the ranks of revolutionary parties at home and abroad, this book depicts the political and intellectual options of the beginning, experimental, and most individualistic stage of the Vietnamese Revolution. In the early years of the Revolution radicalism was the dominant force in anticolonial politics. The displacement of radicalism by communism, however, has obscured its role as a nonideological reaction to both colonial rule and native accommodation to that rule. Hue-Tam Ho Tai shows that radicalism arose from the combined national and personal concerns of young Vietnamese, who saw a symmetry between the national struggle for independence from colonial rule and their own efforts to emancipate themselves from the oppressiveness of native social institutions and the deadweight of tradition. Making use of literary sources, archival materials, and the unpublished memoirs of her father, a participant in these events, the author interweaves analysis and narrative, generalized observations and detailed anecdotes to bring to life the personalities and the spirit of the times.

In the early years of the Vietnamese Revolution--the 1920s and 1930s--radicalism was the dominant force in anticolonial politics. The subsequent displacement of radicalism by communism, however, has obscured radicalism's role as a nonideological reaction to both colonial rule and native accommodation to that rule. Hue-Tam Ho Tai seeks to redress the influence of radicalism on this crucial point in Vietnamese history. She reveals a vibrant and explosive era of student strikes, debates on women's emancipation, revolt against the patriarchal family, and intellectual explorations of French and Chinese politics and thought. Making instructive use of literacy sources, archival materials, and the unpublished memoirs of her father, himself a participant in these events, Tai persuasively sets right the personalities and spirit of the Revolution--and the culture from which it emerged.
