Zinoman, Peter, 1965–.
Vietnamese colonial republican : the political vision of Vu Trong Phung / Peter Zinoman.
         pages cm
Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary: “This volume is a comprehensive study of Vietnam’s greatest and most controversial
20th century writer who died tragically in 1939 at the age of 28. Vu Trong Phung is known for a
remarkable collection of politically provocative novels and sensational works of non-fiction reportage
that were banned by the communist state from 1960 to 1986. Leading Vietnam scholar, Zinoman,
resurrects the life and work of an important intellectual and author in order to reveal a neglected
political project that is excluded from conventional accounts of modern Vietnamese political history.
He sees Vu Trong Phung as a leading proponent of a localized republican tradition that opposed
colonialism, communism, and unfettered capitalismand that led both to the banning of his work and to
the durability of his popular appeal in Vietnam today”—Provided by publisher.
