UC Press publishes Professor Keith’s book

Professor Charles Keith’s book, Catholic Vietnam: A Church from Empire to Nation, was recently published by University of California Press. Keith explores the complex position of the Catholic Church in modern Vietnamese history. By demonstrating how French colonial rule allowed for the transformation of Catholic missions in Vietnam into broad and powerful economic and institutional structures, Keith discovers the ways race defined ecclesiastical and cultural prestige and control of resources and institutional authority.
