Changing Worlds

David W. P. Elliott

Oxford University Press

Looking at the causes and consequences of collective idea-change among Vietnam's political elite as a way of understanding how Vietnam made the transition from a rigidly orthodox Marxist-Leninist state and intransigent member of “the socialist camp,” in a sharply divided Cold War international system, to deep engagement with globalization in a world no longer clearly divided into friends and enemies. The Vietnam of the twenty-first century would have been inconceivable to either Vietnamese or foreign observers at the end of the Vietnam War in 1975.

Keywords:   two camps, socialist camp, aid, dependency, idea change, learners and adapters, performance based legitimacy, conservatives, reformers, wealth and power, falling behind
