Gender-related studies on contemporary Vietnam are few in number, and most writing concentrates on socio-economic topics. This book's focus on the fundamental issues of gender roles is a significant contribution. Bruce M. Lockhart, National University of Singapore. Our knowledge of contemporary Vietnamese society is still limited, and studies of gender-related topics are few and far between. This book breaks much New ground on Vietnamese society that it will be of interest also to Vietnam specialists working on non-gender topics, as well as to non-specialists. Confucianism, colonialism and socialism have all contributed significantly to gender relations in Vietnam. More recently, political and social change associated with modernization and globalization have also had an impact. How do the Vietnamese display their social positions and their identities as male or female? This volume examines negotiations, and transgressions, of gender within Vietnamese society, looking at family, social and work relations, bodily displays, body language and occupation of space. Of special interest is a discussion of sexual harassment in schools and the workplace, and the strategies women adopt to deal with it, the first discussion of this issue by a Vietnamese scholar.
