"Crossing borders and exploring ambiguities, the essays in Việt Nam: Borderless Histories draw on international archives and bring a range of ... analytical approaches to the global, regional, national and local narratives of Vietnamese history. Among the topics explored are the extraordinary diversity between north and south, lowland and highland, Việt and minority, and between colonial, Chinese, Southeast Asian, and dynastic influences."--Page 4 of cover.
