Vietnamese ethnic minorities

Dear All,

Could anyone recommend books or articles (in French or English) on the classification of ethnic minorities in Vietnam? Have there been any comparative studies on ethnic classification in Vietnam AND in China - or elsewhere?

More specifically, I understand that there are films in Vietnam that display ethnic minorities, but I can't seem to be able to find any references?

 

Many thanks in advance.

Best,

Vanessa Frangville

Dear Members of H-ASIA,

We've just uploaded a podcast interview with Barbara Harriss-White about her new co-authored book Dalits and Adivasis in India’s Business Economy: Three Essays and an Atlas (Three Essay Collective, 2013).

The book explores the ways in which economic liberalisation interacts with caste, specifically in reference to scheduled castes and scheduled tribes and was written along with Elisabetta Basile, Anita Dixit, Pinaki Joddar, Aseem Prakash and Kaushal Vidyarthee.
