Notes 'The book is divided into two nicely complementary parts. In the first ... a brief but detailed history of the effects that the French policy of land expropriation and free land concession had upon the peasant; the resulting problems of tenant farming and sharecropping; and the roles of taxes, tax collection, usury, government agrarian credit programs, and industry and commerce in determining the peasants' living standards." "This history provides an objective background for the second part ... which introduces moving personal Vietnamese accounts in translation of life in the twenties and thirties."--Jacket.
Includes bibliographical references (pages 277-285) and index.
