Corfield, Justin, Historical Dictionary of Ho Chi Minh City (Anthem Press, Anthem Historical Dictionaries of Cities, 2013).

Offering a concise overview of Ho Chi Minh City’s history and development, the ‘Historical Dictionary of Ho Chi Minh City’ presents a comprehensive historical survey of the city in the form of an alphabetical list of keywords and names, with accompanying definitions. Both well-researched and authoritative, the volume draws upon a wide range of modern sources, and contains an introductory essay about the city, a chronology, a list of acronyms and abbreviations, photographs and appendixes of supplemental information.

Justin Corfield has been teaching history and international relations at Geelong Grammar School in Australia since 1993.
