The Story of Vietnam from Prehistory to the Present

Subtitle :

Abstract :
For those who are looking for a very well informed introduction to Viet Nam from its semi-mythical beginnings some 5,000 years ago all the way up to the twenty-first century, this is the book. Covering politics and war, society and economics, culture and relationships, it provides the essential structure that both teachers and students will want to begin their own explorations of this fascinating country. Woods successfully captures the essential scope and complexity of Vietnamese history and culture in substantive and accessible prose. The focus on the long duration of the country and the ability for Viet Nam to maintain its own identity in the midst of numerous foreign invasions and influences is key among other relevant issues. Woods elegantly frames the relevance of Viet Nam and this book will provide a foundation for teachers in understanding issues of culture and change in a globally connected world.
