People Livelihoods and Development in the Xekong River Basin Lao $33.00

People, Livelihoods, And Development In The Xekong River Basin, Laos

By Ian G. Baird & Bruce Shoemaker

People, Livelihoods and Development in the Xekong River Basin of Laos is a wide-ranging study that provides an overview of the area's history and geography as well as the cultures and local livelihood systems of the multiethnic people living there.

Central to the study is a detailed description of the acute social, cultural, economic and ecological challenges locals are facing as a result of the rapid changes now taking place in the region. While these changes are being made in the name of 'development', in reality they often involve conflicts between outsiders and local communities over the use of the area's natural resources.

Taking a critical political ecology approach, the authors examine the complicated links between livelihoods and development. The book provides a sobering picture of the potential vulnerability of local cultures, livelihood systems and the natural environment to be negatively impacted, were uncontrolled globalization and outside market forces to continue to radically transform the Xekong River Basin.
