Chapter Summary

The seventeenth century has long been considered a watershed in Vietnamese history. It witnessed not only social transformation born of the protracted series of political crises, it also saw the penetration of regional and international trading networks into the country. A combination of internal and external factors led to a remarkable metamorphosis of Vietnamese society and its economy during this eventful century. The vicissitudes in the southern Vietnamese Kingdom of Quinam have been clarified in a series of comprehensive works in recent years, those of Tonkin have remained unstudied. This chapter sketches the major features of Dutch influence on the politics, economy, and society of seventeenth-century Tonkin.

Keywords: Dutch-Vietnamese Interactions; Quinam; seventeenth century; Tonkin
