State of the Nation

I've written here before (as well as in the novels) about Mongolia's strong, if sometimes problematic, sense of national identity.  I was interested to see, therefore, that money has recently been allocated to establish a new History Museum of the Mongolian State

A more worrying depiction of one particular strand of Mongolian nationism is provided by Kirril Shields's recent discussion of right-wing and neo-Nazi groups in Ulaan Bataar.   Their goals and ideology sound confused and half-baked, but the trend is a worrying one, particularly as, like the rest of the world, Mongolia is facing harder economic times
