New Views of Tibetan Culture

Edited by: David Templeman

This wide-ranging book presents 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), humor in old Tibetan verse, and concepts of the self in modern testimonia. The contributors approach their topics with verve and insight, employing novel and often ground-breaking ways of dealing with their respective fields.
