Đỉnh cao đế uốcArly on he states emphatically that Dalat is so enigmatic in large art because it almost encapsulates the colonial era and its contested legacies and memories Throughout the work Jennings convincingly and consistently conveys this lofty notion especially within several compelling chapters Most revealing is the chapter documenting the harsh treatment of minority and Vietnamese coolies by Europeans during initial expeditions to uncover the mysterious highlands of the Lang Bian From the founding of the modern Indochinese federation to the waning days of French colonialism in the region the 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 diseases could find their way into the cooler mountain altitudes They Would Also Discover That Dalat Was Not Free From The also discover that Dalat was not free from the 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 Fly Away Peter perspectives and recollections of the Vietnamese are seldom heard while the minorityeoples are reduced to the role of bystander often as the silent victim in a story about brutal and racist colonial labour ractices or abuse Also garnering little than mere mention on a number of occasions in the book were the hill stations of other colonial owers most often that of Simla in British India Jennings feels the need to reference these other upland stations for comparative 50 notions cls sur l'conomie pour les Nuls purposes at various junctures but he does so withractically no explanation or description of them In one section subtitled Foreign Models he dedicates most of the details to foreign designs and how they differed from Dalat That being said such minor critiues still allows for the robust thesis and substantial evidence resented in Imperial Heights to carry the day 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 ublished 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 due in large Kintoki part to comprehensiverimary archival research much of which was not available to scholars outside of Vietnam until recently In fact restrictions remain on archival sources from as far back as the ost World War II years but especially for restrictions remain on archival sources from as far back as the ost World War II years but especially for from the recent The Big Sleep past which continues to hamper French Indochina historical scholarship today Sources that are availablerovide an incomplete or biased Chimes of a Lost Cathedral The Revolution of Marina M picture of the city during aeriod of significant conflict However Jennings does admirable work with what he Does Have The Book Also have The book also firsthand accounts from individuals who grew up and went to school in Dalat The city evolved into a opular centre for education after first being imagined as a safe and healthy retreat away from the heavily opulated lowlands In addition Imperial Heights displays a handful of images of artifacts such as Burials in Hawaii posters and luggage tags whichortray the hill station and the minority القوة الهادئةغير طريقة تفكيرك يتغير العالم من حولك popula.
