Isolated by the Himalayan mountains through most of its history, the Tibetan people were able to create a complex and peaceful civilization that gave homage to nature and embodied their society in accordance to deeply held spiritual beliefs. "Ancient Tibet" is a 371-page compendium showcasing that history. Informed and informative, "Ancient Tibet" covers the formation and development of the Tibetan tribes and early kings (especially through the 8th and 9th century), drawing from Tibetan records, as well as the records of Tibet's neighboring nations and other historical sources. The result is an impressive body of work that provides an illuminating background to the development of Tibetan culture. Thoroughly 'reader friendly', "Ancient Tibet" is an especially recommended addition to academic and community library World History reference collections, and will prove to be of exceptional interest for the non-specialist general reader with an interest in Tibetan history and culture.
