Review: Ancient Futures: Learning from Ladakh

User Review  - Josephine Ensign - Goodreads

To me this book read like yet another white person exoticsizing and romanticizing indigenous cultures. I stuck with it though hoping to find some nuggets of new ideas, but I didn't. Disappointing but I'm still glad I read it since it seems to be a 'new classic' among environmentalists. Read full review
