Red Hills: Migrants and the State in the Highlands of Vietnam
Author: Hardy, Andrew;
Winner of the 2005 Harry J. Benda Prize in Southeast Asian Studies, Association for Asian Studies/Southeast Asia Council

Several million rural inhabitants of Vietnam’s northern deltas made the decision to move during the twentieth century, seeking to make new homes in the country’s highlands. This book offers a historical analysis of the political economy of migration, stimulated by the French colonial and independent socialist states. It shows how socialist policies especially changed the face of the highlands, as settlers from the plains turned the hills "red."
