Description
 
Join writer Stan Biderman and photographer Kathryn Minette as they cross China and Tibet in search of treasure, finding thousand-year-old Buddhas, lutes, and celestial burial sites. The author reveals a China that hosts such advanced technology as bullet trains juxtaposed against centuries-old mainstays like yaks and camels. Enhanced by Minette's thirty-two page full-color insert and her seventy black-and-white photos interspersed throughout each chapter, this husband-and-wife team document disappearing cultures amid the conflict of a nation attempting to modernize under a totalitarian regime. As the child of Holocaust survivors, Stan is a student of history and a critic of oppressive regimes. In China he experienced firsthand the often brutal military presence in western China and Tibet, and the severe curtailment of speech throughout the country. With the uprisings in the Middle East, he cannot help but wonder-is China next? And if not, how brutal will its regime become in silencing its people?
