Traditional studies of Sino-Viet relations focused on outmoded debates about Chinese aggression and Vietnamese resistance. In reality, their shared heritage led to surprising alliances and connections, and spurred internal debates. Kathlene Baldanza examines seven linked biographies of Chinese and Vietnamese border-crossers whose lives illustrate the entangled histories of those countries.
