Vietnam Joins the World

Synopsis

Ten American and Japanese specialists offer a comprehensive analysis of one of the most dramatic developments in Asia today: the reemergence of Vietnam -- not as the belligerent champion of a militant ideology and socialist causes, but as an open, friendly country seeking a respected place in the world community. Basing their observations on five years of study, visits to Vietnam, and numerous interviews with knowledgeable officials, scholars, and businessmen there and in the United States and Japan, the authors evaluate the political, economic, social, and foreign policy changes that have been taking place in Vietnam over the past decade, trace the responses of the United States and Japan and offer a policy prescription for responding to the challenges of the future.
