The Government of Mistrust: Illegibility and Bureaucratic Power in Socialist Vietnam (New Perspectives in Se Asian Studies), MacLean, Ken
19 MacLean, Ken The Government of Mistrust: Illegibility and Bureaucratic Power in Socialist Vietnam (New Perspectives in Se Asian Studies)
Madison, Wisconsin University of Wisconsin Press, 2013 029929594X / 9780299295943 Softcover As New Softcover 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
Sterling condition softcover copy, with unfurled tips, tight binding, and clean internals, showing only very slight shelf- and edge-wear. Volume contains scholarly apparatus in the form of, e.g., notes, index, and bibliography. According to the publisher's blurb, "Focusing on the creation and misuse of government documents in Vietnam since the 1920s, The Government of Mistrust reveals how profoundly the dynamics of bureaucracy have affected Vietnamese efforts to build a socialist society. In examining the flurries of paperwork and directives that moved back and forth between high- and low-level officials, Ken MacLean underscores a paradox: in trying to gather accurate information about the realities of life in rural areas, and thus better govern from Hanoi, the Vietnamese central government employed strategies that actually made the state increasingly illegible to itself. MacLean exposes a falsified world existing largely on paper. As high-level officials attempted to execute centralised planning via decrees, procedures, questionnaires, and audits, low-level officials and peasants used their own strategies to solve local problems. To obtain hoped-for aid from the central government, locals overstated their needs and underreported the resources they actually possessed. Higher-ups attempted to re-establish centralised control and legibility by creating yet more bureaucratic procedures. Amidst the resulting mistrust and ambiguity, many low-level officials were able to engage in strategic action and tactical manoeuvring that have shaped socialism in Vietnam in surprising ways." xvii + 277 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
