Shows the effects of recent development projects on the relative power of men and women in rural Lao society, and to highlight the responses of women to those changes.. The Lao discusses Lao culture and village life, exploring topics of kinship and family, gender relations, households, religion, livelihood strategies, and ethnicity. The authors show the effects and recent development projects on the relative power of men and women in rural Lao society, and highlight the responses of women to those changes. Ireson-Doolittle and Moreno-Black provide not only a description of life on the ground, but also explore how local affairs are connected to the wider world, and how the Lao people preserve traditions while also responding to change.
