Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This collection of well-crafted essays marks a major contribution to our knowledge and understanding of the making of a new Vietnamese 'order' since the 1980s. Not only do the authors examine the interconnected transformation of Vietnam at the state, regional and international levels, but they often compare Vietnam's experience to that of other postcommunist states. Scholars, policy makers, diplomats, and general readers intrigued by Vietnam will all find something of great interest in these thoughtful essays. Those working in comparative politics and on postcommunist societies will certainly not be disappointed."
—Christopher Goscha, Professor of International Relations, Université du Québec à Montréal
