Format: Hardcover
"Buddhas in Disguise" is a richly illustrated and knowledgeable portrayal of the life, environment and culture of the deaf in Nepal, written by a woman who spent three years living and working with these forgotten but brave people. The book is worth getting for the photography alone, which is wonderful, but the photos are accompanied by a fascinating description of a people about which the world is nearly completely ignorant. If you are interested in Nepal, in foreign cultures, in excellent photography, or deafness, I highly recommed this book

Thank you for the prompt delivery of my order. As I am deaf and have travelled in Nepal I just had to buy this book! It is fantastic and the beautiful photographs are similar to what I saw In Nepal myself. A wonderful treasure for keepsake.

I am so thrilled to be reading this book. I just visited Nepal a couple of months ago, even stopped in a school for the deaf. Having deaf children of my own, this was a very special thing for me. This book is giving me so much depth of information, range of knowledge re: deaf culture in Nepal that I am wanting to go back as soon as I can, visit and learn more. Wonderful book.

By A Customer on September 2, 1998
Format: Hardcover
Americans who have been learning lately about Deaf Culture in America will appreciate reading this book about Deaf people who are not as fortunate in overcoming discrimination or having a rich source of education available for them, and will understand where Deaf Americans have come from. A must-read for educators and advocates who want to undertand what Deaf people face in demanding equality in their lives. Written by a daughter of Deaf parents who saw first-hand what life is like in America, and then learned what it is like to be deaf in a country where Deaf people are not so fortunate. At the same time, the book shows the beauty of the country itself, their culture and customs through photographs made by the author when she took side trips from her base in Kathmandu.
