Description About the author Contents
 
Scarcely has a region captured popular imagination as has Tibet. In the past century, the Western view of Tibet evolved from backward shamanistic theocracy to exotic Shangri-La promising immortality, to an enlightened society now ravaged by outside aggression. Where did such ideas come from and why did they change?
"Imagining Tibet" represents the first comprehensive attempt to explore such portrayals of Tibet in their 'sthetic, intellectual, and political dimensions. It traces the earliest roots of these images in the writings of explorers and missionaries, progressing through the depictions employed by Theosophists and scholars, up to the contemporary views of political activists and Buddhist practitioners.
