On the Event on 17 February 1979 Revisited



Prof. Vu Duong Ninh

Vietnam National University, Hanoi


The purpose of the article is to revisit the event on 17 February 1979 on the occasion of the 37th anniversary of the frontier war in the North Vietnam. The author raises questions why Vietnam is still silent while countries voice and discuss on this event. In addition, on the side of Chinese books this is called the "self-defense counterattack" in order to punish Vietnam, and "teach Vietnam a lesson". Essentially, it confirms that this war’s nature as for China is the aggression against Vietnam; and the Vietnamese people bravely went in the war against the invasion in order to protect the National frontier. This is a part of the struggle to protect the border on land (southwest and north) as well as Hoang Sa and Truong Sa Islands.

It needs to induce young generations to understand the nature of this event, to solemnly organize a grateful celebration for soldiers, fellow-citizen who laid down their life for their homeland. Vigilant lessons will be learned from that in avoiding ambiguity in terms of ideology of harming national interest.



George Coedès and Political Institutions in Ancient Southeast Asia


Prof. Dr. Nguyen Van Kim - Dr. Pham Van Thuy

VNU-University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Hanoi


Georges Coedès (1886-1969) is a distinguished French historian and archeologist, former director of the L’École française d’Extrême-Orient (EFEO) during the period of 1926-1946. His main contributions focus on the ancient history of Southeast Asia in which he developed the concept of Indianized states in Southeast Asia. According to G.Coedès, the models of state institution, power structure and lineages in ancient Southeast Asia were originated from India through the mediatory role of traders and such prominent religions as Hinduism and Buddhism.

          G.Coedès’s theory of Indianization or Hindunization has become the classical view for researches about ancient Southeast Asia, despite an increasing number of scholars who disagree with him. By examining a number of his major works, this article seeks to highlight the contributions of G.Coedès in reconstructing the political institutions of ancient Southeast Asia. It also gives attention to the enduring debates and problems of his theory.

About “Dossier Sending the President and the Congress” of the Sangha Church and the Vietnamese Buddhist Association in Central Vietnam on February, 20th 1962

Based on “Dossier sending the President and the Congress” of the Sanghai Church and the Vietnamese Buddhist Association at the central Vietnam on February, 20th  1962, the aricle draws into the three conclusions:

  Firstly, the compelled policy for Buddhists following Catholic was reflected in “Dossier sending the President and the Congress” of the Sangha Church and Vietnamese Buddhist Association in the Central Vietnam on February, 20th 1962, affirmed that Ngo Dinh Diem administration applied various forms and measures in each local (province or district) in order to deceive public opinion on that there was not the discriminatory policy for the Buddhists in the South.

   Secondly, based on “Dossier sending the President and the Congress”, we see that the obvious aim of the compelled policy for Buddhists following Catholic of Ngo Dinh Diem administration was southern Catholicize. The strategic aim was to wipe out the patriotic and resistance movement of Southern people.    

Thirdly, “Dossier sending the President and the Congress” helps us to see that under Ngo Dinh Diem’s regime, national and class contradiction developed the highest point. Therefore, this“Dossier” was seen to prepare ideologically for the struggle of Southern Buddhists agaisnt the Ngo Dinh Diem administration when the opportunity was coming.



On the Relations of a Number of Vietnamese People with Japanese Militarism in the Second World War


Assoc. Prof. Dr. Vu Quang Hien

VNU-University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Hanoi



During World War II, the Japanese militaristic government sent troops to invade Vietnam. Their actions have left considerable pain not only for the Vietnamese people, but also for the Japanese people.

The Vietnamese and Japanese relations at the time were truly unusual, a painful past, but left behind historical experiences for the building and development of bilateral relations today in terms of the mutual respects of the independence, sovereignty and political institutions; a cooperation on the basis of building mutual trust for benefits of two countries, for peace and stability in the region and the world.

At present, the partnership between Vietnam and Japan is increasing progressively. That past is unusual but never trivial when future generations draw lessons from the historical past for a better future.
