About This Book

This is a substantial comparative interdisciplinary study of poverty and migration in Ho Chi Minh City. The 16 specialist papers include the findings of fieldwork done mainly 1998 to 2002 in Ho Chi Minh City and in four regional areas from which migrants come. Part 1 deals with the historical contexts and research methodology. Part 2 concerns itself with migration and urbanization including the impetus to migrate and the conditions faced by migrants. Part 3 explores urban poverty including the impact of credit policies and patterns, and Part 4 sets the findings on urbanization, migration and urban poverty and transition into the Southeast Asian context. With much tabulated data, black-and-white photographs, bibliography, and index.
