Dr. Chu Xuan Giao

It can be the right research method to contribute to clarify cultural and historical issues about the Mạc Dynasty in its final stages. The article consists of following contents: 1) Ancient Viên Minh Pagoda; 2) Nam Việt Kingdom at will, the Cao Bằng kingdom in reality; 3) Prominent King of the Mạc Dynasty and the Talented Official bearing the family name Lê.

Dr. Nguyen Quang Lieu

VNU University of Social Sciences and Humanities



In the armed resistant movement against the French in the second haft of the nineteenth century, the Bai Say uprising under the leadership of Nguyen Thien Thuat was the largest and most important one in the North of Vietnam. In order to re-examine the role and significance of this uprising, the authors of this article try to situate Nguyen Thien Thuat in the intellectual and political context of Vietnam and of Southeast Asia in the 19th century for reconsideration. In this way, the authors point out, that Nguyen Thien Thuat and other leaders of the movement were the true patriotic hero of their time. But they belonged to the most conservative Confucian intellectuals in Vietnam of that time. And this was the root cause for the quasi unavoidable failure of the movement. Along this line, the authors also re-interpret the role and significance of the Bai Say uprising and bring in new insights.

Doi Moi (Reform) in Vietnam in the East Asian Political and Economic Context in the Second Haft of the 20th Century


Dr. Pham Van Thuy

VNU University of Social Sciences and Humanities


This article seeks to contextualize Vietnam’s Doimoi in the political and economic transformations in the East Asian countries in the second half of the twentieth century. Attention is given to the countries, which have a historical affinity with Vietnam, i.e. the countries formerly colonized by Western powers or by the Japanese. Shortly after independence, many countries in the regions implemented the economic and social reform programs, transforming themselves to become the Newly Industrialized Countries (NICs) or Asian Tigers. Due to consecutive wars, Vietnam launched the reform (Doimoi) rather later than other countries. However, the remarkable achievements of the Doimoi ensure that Vietnam will be able to catch up, or even surpass many countries in the region.
