vi + 200pp, typescript, paperback, quarto, very good copy in original wrappers. Monash Papers on Southeast Asia - Number 6. 'This is a study of the decline of the Constitutionalist Party, a numerically small political group which favoured the achievement of some form of Vietnamese independence through reform and Franco-Vietnamese collaboration, and which was active in French Cochinchina between the two World Wars. The party was shaped by and perhaps only viable in the special environment of Cochinchina, the most Gallicized part of Indochina. Despite its small size and limited appeal, the Constitutionalist Party had such success in the 1920s that many of the Constitutionalists' contemporaries, and some later historians, came to believe that the party constituted a serious alternative to revolutionary nationalism in Vietnam.'
