About This Item

Armonk, New York & London:: M. E. Sharpe, Inc., (1990). Fine in fine dust jacket (a new copy.). First printing. A book which is a combination of the history of Laos from 1959-1984, travelogue, diary and love story. From Publishers Weekly: the author "recounts the tragedy of a gentle people caught up in factional conflicts led by three Lao princes. He records the chaotic history of Laos in its last years and the struggle by shaky coalitions representing outside interests to maintain the country's independence and neutrality prior to the communist takeover in 1975. A keen, sympathetic observer, the author evokes the storybook charm of the former French colony as he quotes letters written home during his romantic courtship of and subsequent marriage to one of the princes' daughters. He also depicts a bewildering, multinational cast of characters, including Americans who, according to the policies of successive administrations, alternately supported the kingdom or speeded its downfall." Map frontispiec, photographs, index. 227 pp.

About Bookfever.com, IOBA

This is our 28th year in business. We started selling books in the CompuServe Book Collecting forum in 1993, quite a while before there was any commercial Internet. In 1998 we relocated our main business from Sacramento to the Sierra foothills of Amador County, about 35 miles east of downtown Sacramento and opened a store (called Books Upstairs) at the Antiques Upstairs Mall, 5 Main Street, Jackson, CA. (open every day from 10-5) The emphasis there is on Western Americana, children's books, mysteries, science fiction, and inexpensive reading copies of classics and vintage juvenile series. Please let us know if there are any other books you are looking for; we enjoy helping collectors complete their collection and we can often suggest books for reading! .
