Several million rural inhabitants of Vietnam's northern deltas made the decision to move during the 20th century, many in response to policy decisions taken in Hanoi. They sought new homes in the country's highlands. Their decisions and the settlements they created had wide-ranging effects on their home communities and on the people and environment of their destinations. The book offers an historical analysis of the political economy of migration, stimulated by the French colonial and independent socialist states and shows how socialist policies in particular changed the faces of the highlands as settlers from the plains turned the hills 'red'.
Placing people's experiences in the context of government policy and national history, this book explores their anticipations, difficulties, achievements and disappointments, highlighting the geopolitical importance of the highlands. It can be read as a contribution to migration studies in Southeast Asia, but also as a grassroots history of 20th-century Vietnam. Written in a lively reading style and illustrated by numerous maps and photographs, this study promises to become a classic in Vietnamese historical studies.
'A considerable achievement, innovative in its methodology and original in its theoretical insights.' --External reviewer
