This volume brings together distinguished international specialists on Vietnam and its reform process to explore the impact of reform in Vietnam on the Vietnamese state, society, and order, and Vietnam's international and regional environment.
"This collection of well-crafted essaysmarksa major contribution to our knowledge and understanding of the making of a new Vietnamese 'order' since the 1980s.Not only do theauthorsexamine the interconnected transformation of Vietnam at the state, regional and international levels, butthey 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"Recommended." - CHOICE
