Description - The Colonial Bastille by Peter Zinoman

This study focuses on the colonial prison system in French Indochina and its role fostering modern political consciousness among the Vietnamese. Using prison memoirs, newspaper articles, and extensive archival records, the author presents information to document how colonial prisons, rather than quelling political dissent and maintaining order, instead became institutions that promoted nationalism and revolutionary education.
