This introduction to Vietnam brings an often-lacking historical perspective to the evaluation of this conflict-ridden nation. The author places Vietnam in the context of its traditional cultural and colonial relationship with China and its more recent experience under the French. Arguing that the quest for national identity has been a recurring theme throughout Vietnamese history, the author asserts that nationalism, more than communism, fuelled the nation's recent struggle against France, the United States and China. The second half of the book examines the post-war era, including Vietnam's decade-long occupation of Cambodia, the recent UN settlement, and Hanoi's evolving relations with the major powers.
