   schema:reviewBody ""Beginning with the tumultous 1954 land reform in Thinh Liet, the study examines the key foci of revolutionary cultural change, such as the articulation of a new moral system, the attempts to eliminate explanations that invoke supernatural causality, the creation of socialist weddings and funerals, and the development of innovative ties to commemorate war dead. From their inception, these reforms were controversial, as they raised powerful questions regarding the proper fulfillment of moral obligations, the ideal constitution of society, the nature of the world and the position and abilities of humans within it. By examining debates over culture, ritual, and morality that have emerged between residents, notably between men and women, and party members and non-party members, the study shows how ideas and values that preceded the revolution have entered into a creative dialogue with those that were articulated by the revolution, and how this has produced an innovative set of ritual and other cultural practices, particularly since the relaxation of the cultural reform agenda in the post-1986 period."--BOOK JACKET." ;
