In the late 1990s, planning authorities in the Vietnamese capital ofHanoi pushed the imaginary line between city and country severalkilometres westward, engulfing dozens of rural settlements. This bookexplores how one such village, Hoa Muc, rapidly transitioned into anurban neighbourhood, and the state regulations and early urban changesthat drove this transformation. The compelling story of this singlevillage is both a portrait of a population that has endured despitedrastic upheavals and a new analytical window into Vietnam'songoing urban transition.
