內容簡介

重新理解複雜及獨特的殖民文化,探索越南現代史真相

越南是一個相當獨特的國家,身為殖民者又同時是被殖民國。因為獨特的政治形勢及變遷,造就越南成為亞洲文化屬性最複雜的國家。伴隨越來越多人造訪越南,卻鮮少有人能真正理解越南的獨特之處。本書由越南文化專家Christopher Goscha透過多變的歷史變遷解析越南,越南有王朝、殖民時期、共和政體、共產政體,歷經變亂,政治變遷無常,作者站在第三者的立場,客觀地論述其歷史演變。內容包括法越戰爭、南北分裂、第一次印支半島戰爭、第二次印支半島戰爭、美國退出越南、南越亡國、第三次印度那支戰爭、中越戰爭、革新政策。想詳盡理解越南現代史的讀者,絕對不可錯過。 

'This is the finest single-volume history of Vietnam in English. It challenges myths, and raises questions about the socialist republic's political future' Guardian

'Powerful and compelling. Vietnam will be of growing importance in the twenty-first-century world, particularly as China and the US rethink their roles in Asia. Christopher Goscha's book is a brilliant account of that country's history.' - Rana Mitter

'A vigorous, eye-opening account of a country of great importance to the world, past and future' - Kirkus Reviews


Over the centuries the Vietnamese have beenboth colonizers themselves and the victims of colonization by others. Their country expanded, shrunk, split and sometimes disappeared, often under circumstances far beyond their control. Despite these often overwhelming pressures, Vietnam has survived as one of Asia's most striking and complex cultures.

As more and more visitors come to this extraordinary country, there has been for some years a need for a major history - a book which allows the outsider to understand the many layers left by earlier emperors, rebels, priests and colonizers. Christopher Goscha's new work amply fills this role. Drawing on a lifetime of thinking about Indo-China, he has created a narrative which is consistently seen from 'inside' Vietnam but never loses sight of the connections to the 'outside'. As wave after wave of invaders - whether Chinese, French, Japanese or American - have been ultimately expelled, we see the terrible cost to the Vietnamese themselves. Vietnam's role in one of the Cold War's longest conflicts has meant that its past has been endlessly abused for propaganda purposes and it is perhaps only now that the events which created the modern state can be seen from a truly historical perspective.

Christopher Goscha draws on the latest research and discoveries in Vietnamese, French and English. His book is a major achievement, describing both the grand narrative of Vietnam's story but also the byways, curiosities, differences, cultures and peoples that have done so much over the centuries to define the many versions of Vietnam.
