   schema:description ""During his twenty-year tenure as a columnist for Viet Nam News, Hanoi's English-language newspaper, Huu Ngoc charmed and invigorated an international readership hungry for straightforward but elegant entrees into understanding Vietnamese culture. The essays were originally collected in the massive Wandering through Vietnamese Culture. With Viet Nam: Tradition and Change, Ohio University Press presents a selection from these many treasures, which are perfectly suited to students of Vietnamese culture and travelers seeking an introduction to the country's rich history, culture, and daily life. With extraordinary linguistic ability and a prodigious memory, Huu Ngoc is among Viet Nam's keenest observers of and writers about traditional Vietnamese culture and recent history. The author's central theme--that all tradition is change through acculturation--twines through each of the book's ten sections, which contain Huu Ngoc's ideas on Vietnamese religion, literature, history, exemplary figures, and more. Taken on its own, each brief essay is an engaging discussion of key elements of Vietnamese culture and the history of an issue confronting Viet Nam today"--"@en ;
