Tai’s work is a mixture of riveting evidence and succinctly drawn inferences about the very complex radical milieu in Vietnam during the 1920s and 1930s. The sources are diverse, ranging from archival evidence to personal histories… Tai not only draws the outline, but she fills in the picture with vivid detail and insightful portraiture.—Marilyn Levine, American Historical Review

Tai’s book sets out to challenge the assumption so prevalent in earlier works which compressed the history of the Vietnamese Revolution into the history of communism. In her quest she marshals an impressive range of material—much of it unknown in the West.—Al Richardson, Analysis
