This chapter discusses the presence of yin and yang in modern guise in Vietnam during the period from 1955 to 1970. When Ngo Dinh Diem became premier of Vietnam, he insisted conformity to the orthodoxy of his own yang model of society, his decision to do which throughout Vietnam resulted in conflict, particularly in the Saigon metropolis. This conflict led to the emergence of the yin component in South Vietnam, which not only completed the yang component of society, but overshadowed it.

Keywords:   yin, yang, Vietnam, Ngo Dinh Diem, model of society, Saigon
