About the Authors
  • This book is a unique analysis of the struggle to build a rule of law in one of the world's most dynamic and vibrant nations - a socialist state that is seeking to build a market economy while struggling to pursue an ethos of social equality and opportunity. It addresses constitutional change, the assertion of constitutional claims by citizens, the formation of a strong civil society and non-profit sector, the emergence of economic law and the battles over who is benefited by the economic regulation, labor law and the protection of migrant and export labor, the rise of lawyers and public interest law, and other key topics. Alongside other countries, comparisons are made to parallel developments in another transforming socialist state, the People's Republic of China.

    • Helps students, scholars, lawyers and others understand the sometimes hidden struggle for the rule of law in transitional socialist countries like Vietnam
    • Use of actual cases allows readers to see legal issues through the lives of ordinary people and their legal problems and claims
    • Helps readers under the full range of legal reform issues and complexities in building the rule of law
