Omschrijving

Jennifer Way's The Politics of Vietnamese Craft is an exceptional book ... a necessary extension to studies of Cold War American cultural diplomacy and histories of design and craft ... It could be used as a basis to question the very foundations of the networks that define contemporary Southeast Asian art today.

Jennifer Way's The Politics of Vietnamese Craft is an exceptional book ... a necessary extension to studies of Cold War American cultural diplomacy and histories of design and craft ... It could be used as a basis to question the very foundations of the networks that define contemporary Southeast Asian art today.

Highly recommendable read to anyone interested in the centrality of Vietnamese craft ... Way inventively constructs a monograph that illuminates the political context of craft, art and design from layered perspectives and histories.

Jennifer Way’s book on the politics of Vietnamese craft makes a valuable and innovative contribution to the field of craft research, adding a new dimension to the study of the American Cold War through the examination of US craft trade in Southeast Asia ... This is an area of craft that is under-researched, and Way is laying the much-needed foundations upon which further research and discussion of this area may be based.

Jennifer Way’s recent book on Vietnamese craft and American diplomacy offers a compelling new perspective on art and politics through Vietnamese “craft aid” in South Vietnam.”

Craft is a remarkably sensitive index of culture and politics, and the best scholarship on the subject does full justice to its nuances. Jennifer Way’s deeply researched examination of craft politics in Vietnam is just such a book. It is a remarkably timely publication, which considers craft in the context of refugee migration, and also looks at the impact of the tragic American intervention in the country. More than just a focused study of craft’s uses and mis-uses in one place, Way’s book is a model for modern craft studies worldwide.

An important and innovative volume that will have wide appeal to scholars of cultural diplomacy, visual culture, U.S. foreign relations, and American Studies.

The American experience in Vietnam has inspired massive amounts of commentary and scholarship over half a century, yet The Politics of Vietnamese Craft contributes something remarkably fresh. Deftly combining the approaches of diplomatic and cultural history, Jennifer Way shows how the US government manipulated the production of Vietnamese handicrafts in the effort to build a robust and enduring South Vietnam in the years before the major escalation of fighting. This innovative and elegant study deserves the attention of readers interested not only in the history of the Vietnam War but also in U.S. efforts to shape politics and culture through the decolonizing world during the Cold War.

Jennifer Way is Professor of Art History at the University of North Texas, USA, specializing in modern and contemporary art, emphasizing social meanings and uses that people make of art, fabrication activities, craft, design and exhibitions. Her current work examines craft objects and fabrication in contexts of war-related coping and healing since the 19th century. She is the author of The Politics of Vietnamese Craft (Bloomsbury, 2019) and co-editor of Craft and War (Bloomsbury, forthcoming).
