Mongolia Remade: Post-socialist National Culture, Political Economy, and Cosmopolitics
Published by Amsterdam University Press
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.
David Sneath is the Director of the Mongolia and Inner Asia Studies Unit and Reader at the Department of Social Anthropology, University of Cambridge. He has over 50 publications including three monographs and three multi-volume edited works.
