Land and Economy in the Traditional Village

  • Nancy Wiegersma


The village described in this chapter existed in Vietnam from the fifteenth to the mid-nineteenth centuries. This model of the village economy is constructed from laws and regulations of the period and from accounts and observations made in the early to mid-colonial period (1853–1935). The model depicts the distribution of property rights and the relations of productions and exchange in the Vietnamese village in this period.
