Viet-Studies


Knowledge is like drugs — if you have it, you share it with friends.

Attention Inside Higher Ed Readers:   Here is the link that IHE should have used to take you to the US-Vietnam Education Memo, posted on the Viet-Studies site. 

One the most informative and interesting Vietnam-related websites in the world is Viet-Studies.Info, created and managed by Dr. Trần Hữu Dũng, professor of economics at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, USA. 

According to Alexa, Viet-Studies  has a three-month global Alexa traffic rank of 72,858.  It ranks 602 in Hanoi and 726 in HCMC.  Alexa estimates that 47% of its visitors are in Vietnam, where it has attained a traffic rank of 762, and its visitors view an average of 2.0 unique pages per day. 

The Viet-Studies site has sections devoted to culture and education and Vietnam’s economy, as well as links to other sites entitled Summer Seminar and New Age (Vietnamese Review of Studies and Discussions). 

To many of you reading this post there is one major drawback – most of the material is in Vietnamese.  Still, it’s worth your while to take a quick look and see what’s of interest in English. 

The best never think that they are the best, and those that believe themselves to be on the side of the angels are often the worst devils. Julian Baggini (from Viet-Studies)
