Written by a native, this history portrays the Sino-Viet interdependence that lasted for 1,000 years and had such an influence on Vietnamese culture. When in the 15th century, the Vietnamese finally evicted their Chinese masters, they were subsequently overrun with the forces of Westernization, the spice trade and industrialization. Chapuiss history takes us to the French conquest through the regimes of Emperors Gia Long, Ming Mang, Thieu Tri, and Tu Duc.
