504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 205-253) and 
520    "How do families hold together when turbulent forces tear 
       them apart? Silence and Sacrifice explores what happens to
       generations of kin who survived anti-imperial and civil 
       wars in Vietnam, only to be confronted with postcolonial 
       transitions to communism and market-friendly late 
       socialism. In recounting vivid family experiences of 
       conflict, love, and loss, Shohet revises canonical 
       theories of sacrifice as blood-filled religious rituals or
       patriotic acts. Motivated by enduring Vietnamese virtues 
       of asymmetrical reciprocity and tình c̉am (love and 
       material care), a myriad of domestic sacrifices-especially
       by women-precariously knot family members together by 
       silencing suffering and naturalizing gender and other 
       hierarchies. Rethinking ordinary ethics, this intimate 
       ethnography reveals how quotidian acts of sacrifice help 
       family members forge a sense of continuity in the face of 
       massive political and economic upheavals"--|cProvided by
