Vietnam on the Move
by May Ly Quang
  • A concise and comprehensive guide to modern Vietnam
  • Numerous colour photos show Vietnamís unique, intriguing, and varied cultures

  • An essential reference for anyone dealing with Vietnam or the Vietnamese

This concise and comprehensive guide to modern Vietnam, compiled by local experts, is a true cornucopia of information for travellers, expats and students alike.

The book covers in one volume Vietnamís flora and fauna with colour photos of towering conifers and exquisite orchids, of whimsical langurs and delicate star deer. It offers a concise history of the country, with names, dates, and illustrations never seen before in print. There is a list of ethnic groups with secondary names, a map showing their locations, and haunting figures: 352 Ro Mam left, 313 Brau, 301 O Du. Further, there are clear diagrams showing the structure of the Party, and the National Assembly.

Colour photos show Vietnamís unique, intriguing, and varied cultures. A chapter on economic history starts in ancient times and brings Vietnam into Doi Moi. A description of religions highlights sects unique to Vietnam as well as those represented internationally. Finally, there are diacritical marks to help foreigners write names correctly.

This volume will be an essential reference for anyone dealing with Vietnam or the Vietnamese.
