The authors trace the evolution of Tibetan culture from its sixth-century pre-Buddhist origins through the introduction of Buddhism, the rise of the great monastic houses, the rise of the "Yellow Hats," and the establishment of the Dali Lama to TIbet's fall to the Chinese Communists in 1959. Subjects include geography, origins, agriculture, literature, philosophy, music, dance, and monarchic rule.
