3:30 PM Lecture: China Mongolia Relations and Taiwan Morris Rossabi, professor and historian of China and Central and Inner Asia at Columbia University, will discuss the present status of Sino-Mongol political, economic and cultural relations, and will seek to assess the future of Mongolia's contacts with China and Taiwan.

After a brief survey of Sino-Mongol relations from 1949 to the mid-1980s, this presentation focuses on China's involvement since the 1990 collapse of communism in its neighbor. Increasing economic relations between China and Mongolia have had an impact on Mongolia's views of and contacts with Inner Mongolia, Taiwan and Tibet. Taiwan has, in turn, been affected by the breakdown of communism in Mongolia.

Searching for a solution, Deborah takes Ciro to see Tommaso, a shy child psychologist. During the course of their visits, Ciro confesses that it's not his father's death that has got him down, it's his love for his classmate, the beautiful Ludovica.
