New Views of Tibetan Culture
New Views of Tibetan Culture is a wide-ranging book bringing new and fresh visions of important aspects of Tibetan culture. It considers fields as diverse as power in Lhatok in Eastern Tibet, the dynamics and politics of lattice window design in Rebgong (Amdo), humour in old Tibetan verse, and concepts of the self in modern testimonia. The authors approach their topics with verve and insight, employing novel and often ground-breaking ways of dealing with their respective fields.
