Table of contents What's This?
Description
The collection comprises periodicals collected by Do Dinh Tuan and published outside of Vietnam in the Vietnamese language. Do collected a broad spectrum of titles that document the concerns and interests of the Vietnamese emigrant community following the collapse of South Vietnam in 1976. As a whole, the periodicals reflect the challenges refugees faced as they built new lives for themselves outside of Vietnam and their lingering concerns for the land and people they left behind.
Background
Since 1982, Do Dinh Tuan has owned and managed Van Khoa Books, a Vietnamese language bookstore located in the Asian Gardens Mall in Westminster, California. The store sells books on topics of interest to the Vietnamese American community, such as English as a Second Language (ESL) books, English and Vietnamese dictionaries, books about the Vietnam War, and translated novels.
