0 Reviews
A comprehensive account of Tibet and the Tibetan people, this book emphasizes the political history of the twentieth century. By utilizing previously ignored archival material from three continents and drawing conclusions focused on the available documentation, The Making of Modern Tibet is the first successful attempt to reach beyond the polemics so often generated in Tibet studies to present a clear and accessible history of this fascinating country.

This new edition is enriched by striking photographs and a comprehensive updating of the issues that have emerged since the publication of the first edition.

On the original edition... Richly documented, wide ranging, thoughtful and probing work that both specialists and students will find stimulating. --The American Asian Review
