This chapter examines the conflict between traditional and early modern culture in Vietnam during the period from 1932 to 1939. Both intra- and interpersonal conflict intensified in early Vietnamese society. The tightly knit core of traditional culture perpetuated itself within the family while the intrusive nucleus of Western civilization was a burgeoning influence. The tragedy of twentieth-century Vietnam emerged as Westernized men and women banded together to impose their views of society, and in doing so came into conflict with other groups who were equally committed to opposing standards.
