Searching for Vietnam
Selected Writings on Vietnamese Culture and Society
by A. Terry Rambo, Khon Kaen University

Brings together many of Ramboís writings about Vietnam from the past forty years, opening with an autobiographical account of his history as a Vietnam researcher that sets each of the selections into the context. The writings are grouped into topical sections, each with a brief introduction that describes the selections it contains. Part I deals with cultural history, religion, and cultural ecology, Part II with the Vietnamese village, Part III with the impact of the war on South Vietnam, Part IV with Vietnamís development prospects in the its reform period, and Part V with problems of development in Vietnamís mountains.
