Beschreibung

Examines the process through which Laos came into existence under French colonial rule through to the end of World War II. This book looks at how Laos' position at the intersection of two conflicting spatial layouts of 'Thailand' and 'Indochina' made its national form a particularly contested process.

Pressestimmen

"Ivarsson's book is a path breaking study of Lao nationalism and the emergence of the modern idea of Laos. This subtle cultural and political history is informed not only by the author's understanding of Laos, but also by his deep knowledge of Thailand, the foil for Lao nationalism. It will inspire others to launch similar detailed investigations into the country's past." - Grant Evans, University of Hong Kong
