Reviews

“Politics in Contemporary Vietnam is a most welcome contribution towards better fathoming the changes the country is undergoing. All of the chapters contribute towards a better understanding of Vietnamese politics, although in quite different ways. … the chapters in this volume complement each other nicely and together form a strong contribution to the field.” (Arve Hansen, Journal of Contemporary Asia, Vol. 46 (1), 2016)
