Description A historical reassessment of southern Vietnam and its distinct culture. The author illuminates the resourceful qualities of the -Da'ng Trong pioneers, develops a meticulous analysis of the Nguyen trade and taxation systems, and, in the process, redefines the chief cause of the Tay Son rebellion. The author argues that two Vietnamese states with distinctive characteristics existed from the seventeenth to eighteenth centuries. The southern part, under the rule of the Nguyen dynasty, represented a land of possibility and expansion to northerners. Li Tana's study focuses upon the socio-economics of Nguyen Cochinchina: the role of foreign merchants, the trading economy of the region, demographics, religious and cultural values, the way in which Nguyen rule affected Vietnamese settlers there, relationships with uplanders, and processes of localization and identity formation. This is a well-written study that is broad in both scope and focus. - Source: Amazon
