This book had its genesis in a Vietnam Reading Group set up in early 2010 at the Centre for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Melbourne, Australia. At the time a number of doctoral students from Vietnam, mostly from Hanoi-based universities, were working at the University of Melbourne. The Group consisted of these students, Lý Thi. Trân, who had previously completed a doctorate in Melbourne, and ` Melbourne academic staff with an interest in Vietnam. Subsequently more doctoral students came from Vietnam to the Centre for the Study of Higher Education and joined the Group, as did another doctoral student from Victoria University.
