Angkor, Before and After: A Cultural History of the Khmers
This important work by Snellgrove and Richardson remains one of the very best surveys of the Tibetans, their religion, and their rich and complex culture. Moreover, it continues to have great relevance today, as we witness the ongoing destruction of this culture at the hands of the occupying Chinese population. In Snellgrove's, words, the book serves to "keep in public view the clear historical right of the Tibetan people to self-determination." With a new preface, and obituary describing the life and career of Hugh Richardson (1905-2000), by co-author David Snellgrove.
