Synopsis:

Twenty years after the Indochina wars, Christopher Kremmer visits Laos-at the crossroads of change in southeast Asia. He begins his journey in the tranquility of Luang Prabang, once the royal capital. With its ancient culture and stately airs, the town-like Laos itself-is a place of secrets, mysteries and nagging questions.

Setting off in search of the lost royal family, a 600-year-old dynasty consumed by the violent troubles of the 1960s and 1970s, Kremmer reveals a small land-locked corner of Asia struggling to deal with the legacies of the US war and Asian communism. Bamboo Palace begins as a travelogue, turns into a mystery and ultimately redefines a nation's history as Kremmer journeys through Laos to uncover one of Indochina's darkest secrets.

About the Author: Christopher Kremmer has spent the past decade exploring Asia and writing about it for print and broadcast media. His award-winning book Stalking the Elephant Kings unearthed the skeletons of communist rule in Southeast Asia. He is the author of the critically acclaimed Carpet Wars, and currently writes for the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. He lives in Berrima, NSW.
