Đỉnh cao đế uốcDochinese federation to the waning ays "OF FRENCH COLONIALISM IN THE REGION "French colonialism in the region construction of Dalat coincided in an attempt to be something it would never entirely achieve a haven for healthy living as well as a sanctuary of European culture and sensibilities Early into the highland experiment the French learned that tropical iseases could find their way into the cooler mountain altitudes They would also iscover that Dalat was not free from the ivisions of race and class or the many colonial anxieties that existed elsewhere in the colony Even exceptional works are not without their flaws For one the perspectives and recollections of the Vietnamese are seldom heard while the minority peoples are reduced to the role of bystander often as the silent victim in a story about brutal and racist colonial labour practices or abuse Also garnering little than mere mention on a number of occasions in the book were the hill stations of other colonial powers most often that of Simla in British India Jennings feels the need to reference these other upland stations for comparative purposes at various junctures but he oes so with practically no explanation or The Alchemical Mandala A Survey of the Mandala in the Western Esoteric Traditions description of them In one section subtitled Foreign Models heedicates most of the The Alcohol Blackout: Walking, Talking, Unconscious Lethal details to foreignesigns and how they Digital Feminist Activism: Girls and Women Fight Back Against Rape Culture differed from Dalat That being said such minor critiues still allows for the robust thesis and substantial evidence presented in Imperial Heights to carry theay The body of historical work on the French colonial empire had routinely lagged behind other imperial historiographies until the twenty first century Jennings impressive scholarship on the topic this is his third book published focusing on French imperialism has helped to fill that void His writing is colourful and charming without being grandilouent but it is his extensive historiographical research approach that should gain the most admiration Imperial Heights is successful ue in large part to comprehensive primary archival research much of which was not available to scholars outside of Vietnam until recently In fact restrictions remain on archival scholars outside of Vietnam until recently In fact restrictions remain on archival from as far back as the post World War II years but especially for those from the recent past which continues to hamper French Indochina historical scholarship today Sources that are available provide an incomplete or biased picture of the city uring a period of significant conflict However Jennings Alien Mate (Zerconian Warriors, does admirable work with what heoes have The book also elivers firsthand accounts from individuals who grew up and went to school in Dalat The city evolved into a popular centre for education after first being imagined as a safe and healthy retreat away from the heavily populated lowlands In addition Imperial Heights isplays a handful of images of artifacts such as posters and luggage tags which portray the hill station and the minority populations inhabiting the region as the French imagined them generating abundant ethnographical contemplations Today the kitschy city of Dalat Race, Culture and Identity in Francophone West African and Caribbean Literature and Theory: From Negritude to Creolite (Francophone Cultures and Literatures, Vol. 32) draws tourists to its honeymooning hotspots and Indochic tourist traps a far cry from theominant colonial hill station of its former glory While salubrious sentiments may have propelled the creation of Dalat in the first place and relative isolation facilitated increased French in the first place and relative isolation facilitated increased French influence in the mountain region over time closer historical inspection revealed it to be neither sanctuary nor stronghold More accurately it.
