Borges published Tibet: Culture in Transition in 2011, presenting an updated view of Tibet. Known as the “water tower of Asia,” the Tibetan Plateau is heating up twice as fast as the global average. Its glaciers are the source of the major rivers that supply the water needs of almost two billion people in India, Pakistan, China, and Indochina. Today these glaciers are rapidly disappearing. This climatic change along with recent unprecedented development on the plateau—roads, railroads, airports, dams, and communication technology—is rapidly changing the lives of the deeply devotional nomads, monks, and farmers who have lived here for centuries.
