About the Book: 
Qu'est-ce qu'un demi-siècle à l'échelle de l'histoire d'un pays ? Entre 1947 et 1989-1991, ces peuples, de Potsdam à Varsovie et Sofia, ont vécu une expérience à la fois unique dans l'histoire, presque aussi traumatisante qu'un conflit, et qui a, de longues années, fasciné supporters et adversaires. Une moitié de l'Europe a vu ses territoires redécoupés, occupés par l'URSS ; son économie et sa société ont été modelées selon des critères et des objectifs élaborés ailleurs ; ses hommes politiques sont allés chercher leurs directives à Moscou. Et pourtant, ces peuples, qui avaient derrière eux une longue histoire et qui furent broyés par quatre ans de guerre, ont survécu, ils ont créé et ils se sont libérés. Henry Bogdan, l'un des meilleurs spécialistes de la Mitteleuropa, a refondu et complété pour l'édition en tempus ce livre qui est devenu un classique.

Vietnamese Classical Literature - 19th Century

Vietnam Classical Literature is not known to the outside world as Chinese Literature. For the younger generation, the study of Vietnamese literature seem to fade away, leaving place to contemporary authors on topics on modern existentialism. In my attempt to "come back to source", I have started a collection of books on Vietnam, and classify them under various topics such as Culture, History, Vietnam War, Politics, Biographies, Contemporary Vietnam, International Relations, Doing Business in Vietnam, Reference and Languages, Zen Buddhism, Philosophy, Art and Literature. 

Here is a short picture of the literary world under the last dynasty of Vietnam: the Nguyen. 

Indeed, the 19th Century was a flourishing century for literature and the arts in Vietnam. It opened up with the Kim Vân Kiều  by Nguyễn Du (1765-1820) and closed with the anonymous Song of True Patriotism (Chính Khí Ca :1900). 

Three outstanding talents, Nguyen Du, Mdm Ho Xuan Huong and Nguyen Dinh Chieu contri…
