The Springhead of Eastern Cultural Civilization

There is a new book out now, titled: Vietnam: The Springhead of Eastern Cultural Civilization. Originally written in Vietnamese (titled “Việt Nam: Suối Nguồn Văn Minh Phương Đông” in Vietnamese), Vietnam was later translated into English by Dr. Joseph M. Vo. As an academic piece of writing, the book answers many questions about Vietnam’s past through extensive academic research and investigation.  Of all the countries in Asia, the historical information on Vietnamese civilization and culture has been the most fragmented and scarce, so a book such as this would provide some much need explanations and answers to the myriad of questions about the history of the Vietnamese people.  This comprehensive book contains explicit information about many different aspects of Vietnamese civilization from various eras, covering even the origin of the Vietnamese people (which dates back to more than 4000 years!).  Currently, only certain bookstores throughout North America sells this important literary work.  However, Vietnam can still be purchased through various online retailers.  Hopefully bookstores and actual retailers sell it soon.
