Second edition of the very accessible 1995 introduction to the people and cultural history of Vietnam by the celebrated Hanoi savant, Huu Ngoc. Part 1 is some 200 very varied informal snapshots of Vietnamese life, culture and history, originally newspaper articles.  Part 2 overviews the major events in the country's political and cultural development.  Part 3 is a miscellany of folk legends and beliefs, poetry and writings together with accounts of significant buildings and institutions.  A truly remarkable open cornucopia for anyone seeking to understand Vietnam and/or its people!
