ANCIENT FUTURES is a remarkable look at the root causes of our environmental and social crises, and a powerful challenge to re-examine what we mean by "progress." Ladakh, or "little Tibet", is a harsh, beautiful land high in the Western Himalayas of India. A model of sustainable living, the traditional Ladakhi culture has prospered, virtually free of crime or pollution. Now, centuries of ecological balance and social harmony are eroding as the result of Western influences.
