Vietnam: The Limits of Liberalization

The ASEAN Studies Center, The Center for Asian Studies, and American University’s Vietnamese Student Association co-hosted the launch of a new book by Mr. Bill Hayton, entitled Vietnam: Rising Dragon, published by Yale University Press in 2010. During the launch event, Mr. Hayton presented the main findings of his book, after which AU Professor Thomas Jandl, an expert on liberalization and decentralization in Vietnam, provided his insights on the topic. Order forms for the book were passed around during the presentation, giving all in attendance the opportunity to be among the first to read this highly-acclaimed study of rapidly-changing Vietnam.
