Spirits of the Place is a rare and timely contribution to our understanding of religious culture in Laos and Southeast Asia. Most often studied as a part of Thai, Vietnamese, or Khmer history, Laos remains a terra incognita to most Westerners┐and to many of the people living throughout Asia as well. John Holt┐s new book brings this fascinating nation into focus. With its overview of Lao Buddhism and analysis of how shifting political power┐from royalty to democracy to communism┐has impacted Lao religious culture, the book offers an integrated account of the entwined political and religious history of Laos from the fourteenth century to the contemporary era.
