Description

Tibet has come to be synonymous with spirituality. It seems that the many hardships endured by the Tibetans – oppressive authorities, extreme altitude, harsh climate – have forced many to focus on the next life rather than the present. Today, still under Chinese occupation, Tibet struggles to regain its independent status.

Chapters consider the land and its identity, religion and beliefs, Kings and Lamas and the invasion and colonization of Tibet. A section of documents looks at travellers to Tibet, Tibetan poetry and medicine and the Tibet China Agreement of 1951.
