The Contemporary History of LAOS

Patit Paban Mishra (Author)
Synopsis Laos, which had an illustrious past, is a tiny landlocked State, sharing common borders with China, Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia and Vietnam. It was considered important strategically during cold war years in pursuit of containment drive. The United States tried to prevent the spread of Communism in Laos too, which proved counterproductive. Laotians objected to the military intervention of the United States and fought bravely under the leadership of Pathet Lao. They finally became victorious in transforming the political system and established Communist rule. The present study has analyzed how Pathet Lao was successful in its endeavours despite several weaknesses and why “containment drive” lost its appeal in Laos and other Indo-China States.
