Book summary

Drawn from inscriptions and texts among the primary sources of Tibet, India, China and Central Asia, as well as a wealth of secondary sources through the ages and the authors' personal experiences, this is a definitive survey of Tibetan history, religion and its rich, complex culture. In Snellgrove's words, the book serves to "keep in public view the clear historical right of the Tibetan people to self-determination". It contains a new preface and an obituary describing the life and career of Hugh Richardson (1905-2000), by co-author David Snellgrove. [via]
