Abstract

This essay has primary reference to the situation in Laos as it existed in the late 1950s . By 1962 the Communists and their allies had obtained effective control of all of the country beyond the regions bordering on the Mekong . It is to be presumed that they have made vigorous efforts to change or at least modify existing administrative and land tenure patterns . Significant migration also occurred during and after the fighting .
