This authoritative and wide-ranging history focuses on the period from the founding of modern Laos as a French colony to its independence, involvement in the war in Vietnam, the formation of the communist republic, and the present authoritarian government. The author shows how the nationalist struggle for independence and unity was subverted by foreign intervention, and how the country has now resumed its traditional role as a neutral state in Southeast Asia. This book provides essential background on modern Laos and the challenges it now faces.

Review:

"A more developed nationalistic historiography will provide ideological support for an inclusive national identity. Stuart-Fox's book is a significant step in that direction for the most poorly developed national historiography in Southeast Asia. Choice

"...a significant contribution to our understanding of the tumultuous history of modern Laos." Steven H. Lee, International Journal

"This brief and readable book belongs on the shelf of anyone concerned with modern Laos." David K. Wyatt, Journal of Asian Studies

"He writes with consistent, readable grace. He has succeeded, perhaps for the first time, finally in making modern (recent) Lao hsitory understandable and believable. This brief and readable book belongs on the shelf of anyone concerned with modern Laos." David K. Wyatt, The Journal of Asian Studies

"...Stuart-Fox has produced a coherent, logically organized, well-documented, and readable narrative of modern Lao history. His work is the best account of modern Lao....The book will no doubt lead to a better understanding of Lao political dynamics, and it should serve as a guide for future scholars who wish to delve deeper into the rich history Laos." Richard B. Verrone, Crossroads

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Repr.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This authoritative and wide-ranging 1997 history traces events in this little-known country from ancient monarchy, through its establishment as a French colony, to independence in 1953, the People s Democratic Republic, and the present one-party authoritarianism. The book highlights Laos complex and shifting political alliances. The struggle for independence from France was followed by a struggle for unity and neutrality in the face of persistent foreign intervention, as the country was drawn into the war in Vietnam. Only with the end of the Cold War and the withdrawal of Vietnamese troops has Laos been able to reassert its neutral foreign policy and develop a market economy. This book is an impressive political, social, cultural and economic history. It will be essential for anyone wanting to understand Laos as it joins ASEAN, faces great economic challenges and struggles to maintain its cultural identity. Seller Inventory # APC9780521597463
