By Christopher E. Goscha

Christopher Goscha resituates the Vietnamese revolution and battle opposed to the French into its Asian context. Breaking with nationalist and colonial historiographies that have mostly locked Vietnam into 'Indochinese' or 'Nation-state' straightjackets, Goscha takes Thailand as his element of departure for exploring how the Vietnamese revolution was once in detail associated with Asia among the start of the 'Save the King stream' in 1885 and the conflict of Dien Bien Phu in 1954.
But his research is greater than only a political historical past. Goscha brings geography to undergo on his topic with a keenness. whereas he considers the little-known political events of such famous faces as Phan Boi Chau and Ho Chi Minh throughout Southeast Asia, the writer takes us into the complicated Asian networks stretching from northeastern Thailand and the port of Bangkok to southern China and Hong Kong - and past. There, we see how Ho and Chau drew upon an invisible military of Vietnamese and chinese language investors, criminals, prostitutes, sailors and particularly the hundreds of thousands of emigres dwelling in Vietnamese groups in Thailand.
