The Red Earth: A Vietnamese Memoir of Life on a Colonial Rubber Plantation

by Tran Tu Binh

The Red Earth is a straightforward account of how one Vietnamese youth became involved in revolutionary politics, was tested amidst the most difficult conditions imaginable, and not only survived, but also gained the obvious respect of his peers. Nevertheless, readers will be aware that a number of Marxist-Leninist didactic points are being made as the story progresses. Three times, for example, Tran Tu Binh asserts that the more people are oppressed the more they will struggle, a theme that Ho Chi Minn stressed constantly, and that was also meant to be applied by Vietnamese readers in 1964 to the growing threat posed by the United States. The feasibility of ethnic Vietnamese (Kinh) and highland minority (Thuong) peoples joining to fight a common foe is highlighted for the same reason. Only passing mention is given to international proletarian solidarity, since that sentiment was much weaker in 1964 than it had been in 1930. Naturally "the Communist party" is given credit at the end for every significant achievement, although the narrative itself suggests no such thing.

Lucy Hughes-Hallett, Sunday Times 'Marvellous and compelling.' Charles Palliser 'A brilliant novel of wondrous conjuring and stunning import.' John Hawkes 'One of the finest Indian novels of the decade.' Shashi Tharoor
