Searching for Shangri-La: Off the Beaten Track in Western China

by Laurence J.Brahm - £19.99  Ibis Press (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780892542208 | ISBN 10: 0892542209

Laurence Brahm travels through the western region of China in search of Shangri-La - only to find that it is not a place, but a state of mind.

Shangri-La has now become a source of creative inspiration, drawing China's leading figures in pop culture and art circles to Western China, all in search of Shangri-La.

China's leading cultural figures such as composer San Bao, dancer Yang Liping, abd pop singer Dadawa appear in the book, together with artists, lamas, and living Buddhas.

Searching for Shangri-La is China's first alternative philosophy travelogue. Can one, indeed, find Shangri-La?
