Going Indochinese: Contesting Concepts of Space and Place in French Indochina
Responsible organisation
2012 (English)Book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Why, Benedict Anderson once asked, did Javanese become Indonesian in 1945 whereas the Vietnamese balked at becoming Indochinese? In this classic study, Goscha shows that Vietnamese of all political colours came remarkably close to building a modern national identity based on the colonial model of Indochina while Lao and Cambodian nationalists rejected this precisely because it represented a Vietnamese entity. Specialists of French colonial, Vietnamese, Southeast Asia and nationalism studies will all find much of value in Goscha’s provocative rethinking of the relationship between colonialism and nationalism in Indochina.

Note

A well-written and interesting study of the formation of the modern Vietnamese, Laotian and Cambodian nation-states.Confirms the accusation that the Vietnamese communists were expansionists trying to establish an Indochinese federation.Goscha’s innovative concept of space has a wider applicability far beyond the time and place he describes.

First published in 1995, the revised edition of this remarkable study is augmented with new material by the author and a foreword by Eric Jennings.
