Cutting through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, the Mekong river basin is home to more than 70 million people and is one of the world's richest agricultural zones. Long known for its natural beauty, remoteness, and abundance of wildlife, the river basin today is undergoing profound changes as a result of China's rise as a global economic power. Development policies prioritizing economic growth aim to interconnect the region through high-speed transportation networks, and to transform its people into modern urbanized consumers. By 2025 a series of dams will harness the river's energy, bringing an end to its natural cycles and threatening to cut off food supplies for over half of the basin's population. In Last Days of the Mekong, Brian Eyler travels from the river's headwaters in China to its delta in Southern Vietnam, exploring issues around development, climate change, rural-to-urban migration, tourism and resource management. Through conversations with villagers, community leaders, and policy makers, Eyler shows how the region's diverse patchwork of peoples are responding to these changes, and their struggles to save the Mekong's fragile ecosystem.
