Product Overview

Mining a wealth of archival sources in France and Vietnam, Pierre Brocheux constructs a fascinating picture of how French capital and technology transformed the Mekong Delta. From the cutting of the first canals in the 1880s to the eruption of the Viet Cong''s insurgency in the 1950s, this book illuminates the subtle interactions between ecology and social change in a tropical delta.
