This paper looks broadly at the changing fortunes of the Chinese water frontier in Southern Vietnam over a 200 year period between the late seventeenth century and the end of the nineteenth century. Initially an area of sparse settlement, Chinese settlers, first Ming refugees and later waves of pirates, planters and traders moved into the Mekong Delta and south eastern Siam to create a vibrant and influential economic centre in the region. By the end of the nineteenth century these areas were largely backwaters of little more than subregional significance. Within the same 200-year period, however, the Chinese presence in Southeast Asia had increased by a phenomenal degree, and completely new centres of activity had been established.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
