About This Book

One hundred and eight fine, black-and-white photo studies illuminate the author's ruminative exploration of geography and life of the Himalayan country of Bhutan. The journey through mountains, ricelands and towns shows aspects of the structures and present, often age-old, ways of life of the kingdom's 480 000 people who are now starting to deal with new impacts from the globalising world. Stories, anecdotes and informal interviews offer insights into Bhutan's philosophy and its stated priority for happiness. Glimpses of future changes are seen and discussed as the book ends in the streets and nightclubs of the capital Thimphu Town.
