In this book, published in 1992, Banning investigates the Vietnamese “Doi Moi”, initiated in 1986, aiming at creating a socialist-oriented market economy. He finds that the after-effects of the war against the United States were still in evidence (at that time), but the inhabitants of the world’s second largest socialist country have found themselves captivated by the culture and the free-market economy of their former enemy.
