This chapter discusses the revolutionary transformation of Son-Duong from 1954–1988. The transformation process was marred by tension arising from a dialectical relation between the principle of radical collectivism espoused by the Marxist state for most of this period and, despite the elimination of the colonial class structure, a hierarchical sociocultural model that centered on the kinship unit. The official collectivist ideology of the state emerged dominant in the northern social formation during this time. It underlay the radical transformation of the village political economy that occurred through the land-reform program and the subsequent collectivization of the means of production. However, the pace of change was not uniform, and the path of transformation was not unidirectional.

Keywords:   revolutionary transformation, radical collectivism, Marxism, Marxist state, social hierarchy, Son-Duong, rural village
