The name Tibet traditionally conjures up a kaleidoscope of timeless images: extraordinary and dramatic landscapes, snow-capped mountains, Buddhist monks and monasteries. But stark new images have now been created by the tide of political events: Chinese soldiers outside the Potala Palace, young Tibetan refugees, the struggles of a nation in exile. This new title in the acclaimed New Horizons series explores the cultural and historical roots of the Tibetan people, their customs and beliefs, and their relations with the wider world, in order to give a fuller understanding of this remarkable land and its indomitable spirit.
