About This Book

Fieldwork over many years is the basis of this study of the recent history of Laos and its multi-ethnic people. Contemporary theories of nationalism and identity are applied in the discussion of the changing ideology of the Marxist- Leninist governments and its (sometimes) paradoxical policies. Particular attention is paid to the multiple identification and self-identification issues faced by the peoples of Laos. Extensively referenced, with bibliography and index.
