WHEN: Oct. 14 Wed. 20:00-21:00 Beijing Standard Time (this talk begins at 8PM in Beijing)
MORE ABOUT THE EVENT: Over 120 years, the capital of Mongolia has transformed from a monastic seat for Vajrayana Buddhism to a Soviet-inspired city to now an experiment in free-wheeling capitalism and democratic reform. Michael Aldrich presents an historical overview of the nomadic roots of Ulaanbaatar, its upheavals, and the sea changes in culture and society which it has undergone.
MORE ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Michael A. Aldrich is a lawyer, author, and lecturer who has lived in Asia for more than thirty years. His book Ulaanbaatar beyond Water and Grass is the first book in the English language to explore all aspects of this unique Central Asian city. He is currently working on another “alternative” guide book, Old Lhasa: A Traveler’s Companion.
