The quest by Laos to balance its economic transformation with retention of national stability and one-party rule involves the regime in 2 balancing acts: first to please neighbours and donors; second to ride the economic whirlwind with-out tumbling from power. Hailed in some quarters as the best short study of Laotian politics to be seen in recent years.
