This original collection of chapters provides unique and fresh insight into Vietnamese contemporary society through the family and gender lenses. Volume editors Magali Barbieri and Daniele Belanger bring together the perspectives of Vietnam experts from various disciplines to examine the significance and impact of the transition from a socialist to a market economy-known as Doi Moi or "the renovation"-for Vietnamese families.
Magali Barbieri is a researcher for the Institut National d'Études Démographiques in Paris, and is the head of its Population and Development Division. Danièle Bélanger is the Canada Research Chair in Population, Gender and Development, and Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Western Ontario.
