Brian Eyler is the director of the Stimson Center's Southeast Asia Program in Washington, DC. Previously, he directed study abroad centres in Beijing and Kunming, China for IES Abroad and led numerous study tours throughout the Mekong region.
In Last Days of the Mighty Mekong, Brian Eyler travels from the river's headwaters in China to its delta in southern Vietnam to explore its modern evolution. Along the way he meets the region’s diverse peoples, from villagers to community leaders, politicians to policy makers. Through conversations with them he reveals the
urgent struggle to save the Mekong and its unique ecosystem.
Brian Eyler’s book Last Days of the Mighty Mekong will be available for purchase at this event.
