Vietnam Since Liberation


The following is an interview with Nguyen Khac Vien, manager of Hanoi Foreign Languages publications and of the review Vietnamese Studies, and one of the most widely known Vietnamese intellectuals outside Viet Nam itself. In it he discusses frankly the social and political problems faced in the difficult task of Viet Nam s reconstruction and economic advance following thirty years of war. The interview — or dialogue — was conducted by Enrica Collotti-Pischel during Vien's lecture tour of Italy in 1978. It was originally published in Rinascita, the Italian Communist Party’s popular theoretical journal. Our translation (by A.M. Elliott) is from the British Communist Party’s theoretical journal, Marxism Today (Feb. 1979).
