The very mention of Tibet evokes in the mind of the reader the image of a nation perilously situated in a geopolitical matrix, caught in the crossfire of history. However, this book reaches beyond immediate history to narrate Tibet's fascinating story of multiple traditions overlaid with legend, folklore, religious ceremony and festivals, and a natural beauty that leaves the onlooker breathless. The history of the periods prior to and following the emergence of a theocratic polity, permeating every aspect of society, in a world increasingly marked by the declining influence of religion, are some of the themes skillfully woven into this book. Tibetan life. culture and society are revealed through outstanding photographs that dramatize a scenography of snows and deserts, of civilizational adventure and happenings on this, the 'roof of the world'. The illustrations provide that popular memory with everyday fables and symbolisms that make the country come alive. This is the book's promise: Tibet will 'appear'and the reader will be held captive of this appearance.
