"Vietnam's role in one of the Cold War's longest-running conflicts has meant that its past has been endlessly abused. Popular accounts have cherry-picked from the Vietnamese past to tell politicized, American-centered stories--either reducing the story of Vietnam and the Vietnamese to a noble tradition of anticolonial resistance embodied by the communist leader Ho Chi Minh, or alternatively seeking to rehabilitate American allies by making similarly essentialist claims about "the Vietnamese" and their history. Now, over forty years after the end of the American war in Vietnam, the events which created the modern state of Vietnam can be seen in truly historical perspective. Christopher Goscha's Vietnam: A New History tells the story of this fascinating and complex country on its own terms, emphasizing the contingency that characterizes Vietnam's history and the diversity of its people, polities, geography, and experiences as both colonized and colonizers"--

Contesting visions of the Lao past : Lao historiography at the crossroads by Christopher E Goscha( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laos's emergence as a modern nation-state in the 20th century owed much to a complex interplay of internal and external forces. Arguing that the historiography of Laos needs to be understood in this wider context, this study considers how the Lao have written their own nationalist and revolutionary history "on the inside," while others-the French, Vietnamese, and Thais-have attempted to write the history of Laos "from the outside" for their own political ends. As nationalist historiography, like the formation of the nation-state, does not emerge within a nationalist vacuum but rather is created and contested from inside and out, this incisive volume's approach has applications and implications far beyond Laos

2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : La fin de la guerre froide, la chute du communisme, l'accès partiel des archives du Vietnam et l'ouverture de ce pays au monde, qui a permis à des historiens non vietnamiens de mener à bien leurs recherches sur le terrain, de dialoguer avec leurs homologues sur place et d'interroger des témoins, ont contribué à une renouvellement important des études sur le communisme vietnamien. "Oubliant les tabous", comme l'écrit Christopher Goscha, qui a dirigé ce dossier, une nouvelle génération de chercheurs délaisse les approches idéologiques, qu'elles soient communistes ou nationalistes, pour mettre au jour de nouvelles sources, de nouvelles interprétations, concernant notamment les rapports entre PC français et indochinois, les tentatives réformistes au lendemain de la mort de Staline ; le culte des martyrs de la révolution ou bien encore la réappropriation par le parti communiste d'une culture traditionnelle

CETTE THESE SOUTIENT L'IDEE QUE L'ON NE PEUT PAS COMPRENDRE LA GUERRE FRANCO-VIETNAMIENNE (1945-1954) SANS LA REPLACER DANS UN CONTEXTE ASIATIQUE PLUS LARGE. SE CONCENTRANT SUR LE CHAMP VIETNAMIEN AU COURS DE LA GUERRE, CETTE THESE DEFEND QUE LA GUERRE FRANCO-VIETNAMIENNE NE FUT NI ENTIREMENT UN CONFLIT <<INDOCHINOIS>>, NI EXCLUSIVEMENT <<VIETNAMIENNE>>. IL S'AGISSAIT AUSSI D'UNE GUERRE REGIONALE. SUR UN PLAN HORIZONTAL, CETTE THESE DIVISE SON ANALYSE DU CONTEXTE ASIATIQUE DE LA GUERRE FRANCO-VIETNAMIENNE EN QUTRE SECTEURS GEOGRAPHIQUES MAJEURS: 1) LA NATURE INDOCHINOISE DE LA GUERRE (LE CAMBODGE ET LE LAOS); 2) LE ROLE DES ASIATIQUES ETRANGERS A L'INTERIEUR DU VIETNAM (LES HUAQIAO ET LES DESERTEURS JAPONAIS) ; 3) LE CONTEXTE THAILANDAIS ET SUD-EST ASIATIQUE DE LA GUERRE (INDE COMPRISE) ; ET4) LE SUD DE LA CHINE ET LA GUERRE FRANCO- VIETNAMIENNE. CHAQUE SECTION SUIT UN ORDRE CHRONOLOGIQUE, PARTANT DE LA <<REVOLUTION D'AOUT>> DE 1945 POUR ARRIVER A LA VEILLE DES ACCORDS DE GENEVE EN MAI 1954. SUR UN PLAN VERTICAL, CETTE THESE ETUDIE LES ACTIVITES DES VIETNAMIENS DANS CES ZONES A TRAVERS CINQ PRINCIPAUX NIVEAUX D'ANALYSE, S'IMBRIQUANT LES UNS DANS LES AUTRES DANS LE TEMPS ET DANS L'ESPACE. IL S'AGIT: 1) DES CARACTERISTIQUES DE L'IMMIGRATION VIETNAMIENNE, CHINOISE ET JAPONAISE A TRAVERS LA PENINSULE ; 2) DE L'ELABORATION D'UN COMMERCE ET GUERRE TERRESTRES ET MARITIME PAR LES VIETNAMIENS AVEC LA CHINE MERIDIONALE ET LA THAILANDE ; 3) DE LA CONSTRUCTION DE RESEAUX REVOLUTIONNAIRES ET ADMINISTRATIFS VIETNAMIENS DANS LA REGION ; 4) DES RELATIONS MILITAIRES REGIONALES ; ET ENFIN 5) DES RELATIONS DIPLOMATIQUES AU NIVEAU REGIONAL ET INTERNATIONAL
