"Indeed, Sneath's unique contribution to the research on Mongolia comes from — although by no means exclusively — his exceptionally fluent and dynamic knowledge of the histories of the Mongols, not just the current and recent socialist, but also the ancient." - Manduhai Buyandelger, The Journal of Asian Studies, 2020

Mongolia Remade

Post-socialist National Culture, Political Economy, and Cosmopolitics

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
This book explores the historical and contemporary processes that have made and remade Mongolia as it is today: the construction of ethnic and national cultures, the transformations of political economy and a ‘nomadic’ pastoralism, and the revitalization of a religious and cosmological heritage that has led to new forms of post-socialist politics. Widely published as an expert in the field, David Sneath offers a fresh perspective into a region often seen as mysterious to the West.
