"A World Transformed" looks at the Vietnamese revolution from the perspective of Vietnamese culture itself rather than as a reaction to the Cold War or to the actions of external enemies. Kim N. B. Ninh explores the complex debates within Vietnamese society about the self, culture, and national identity. She shows how a collective sense of the nation's weakness united communists and many intellectuals, who looked to the establishment of a socialist state to offer both the ideology and the organization that would encourage the emergence of a modern, independent, postcolonial Vietnam.
The study covers the period from the Vietnamese communists' initial ascent to power in 1945 to the beginning of the escalation of the American involvement in the country's conflict in 1965, by which time a full-fledged socialist state had been in place in North Vietnam for eleven years. Through a nuanced examination of critical intellectual works, "A World Transformed" presents a complex view of a period fraught with contradictory possibilities and tensions that continue to resonate in Vietnam today. The extensive use of Vietnamese-language materials, access to archival data never before available, and innovative incorporation of literary and historical sources combine to make this study an invaluable depiction of the Vietnamese revolution.
Kim N. B. Ninh is Assistant Director of the Governance, Law, and Civil Society Programs, The Asia Foundation, San Francisco.


Research Frontiers Of Sedimentary Basin Interiors

In this book, the leading edge of basin research is presented in the course of a detailed case study on an oblique convergent margin. Sedimentary basins are rich in natural resources and often overlain by densely populated residential areas, then draw attention of technical experts who are engaged in the field of civil engineering, disaster prevention, natural resource exploration, and so forth. Such a pragmatic viewpoint aside, clastic materials filling basins are a good example of the developmental process of the Earths surface. Detailed analysis reveals paleoenvironmental changes linked to eustatic sea-level changes and the uplift and exhumation process of hinterlands governed by longstanding tectonic episodes. The authors review the latest analytical methods of the gravity anomaly. Apart from conventional gravimetric prospecting, recently developed innovative methodologies have tremendous usability to aid in comprehending the deep three-dimensional structure of the sedimentary basins. Combining stratigraphic/sedimentological data of numerous boreholes and high resolution profiles of the reflection seismic survey, the authors visualize the deep interior of a fault-related basin in the Japanese Islands as an ideal example that has been studied by many researches and never been understood in a multidisciplinary way. Surely, this book provides audiences with an integrated vision of the basin evolution processes under the influence of dynamic spatial and temporal changes in tectonic regimes on active plate margins.
