[ndlr] Un H-Diplo important sur le dernier ouvrage du grand historien David G. Marr. Introduction de Stein Tonnesson, analyses de Pierre Brocheux, Shawn McHale, Pham Quang Minh et Tuong Vu suivies de la réponse de l’auteur. A lire sur H-Diplo.
Vietnam: State, War, and Revolution (1945–1946) is a work of immense value for future debates about such issues, because it brings so many previously unknown facts to the table. The book is likely to attract many Vietnamese readers. Books like these cannot yet be produced by Vietnam-based Vietnamese scholars, who are not free to undertake independent research on topics of major political importance. Once Marr’s book appears in a complete and fully reliable Vietnamese translation – as Pham Quang Minh says it must – it is likely to become a work of reference in Vietnam. My hope is that it will set a standard of historical craftsmanship for future generations of Vietnamese historians (Stein Tonnesson).
