Tibet’s Relations with the Himalaya
About the Book
The Himalaya is a cornucopia and convergence of sovereign states, civilisational interaction and indigenous cultures across a stretch of two thousand miles. Its primary cultural influences have been that of Tibetan and Indic civilisations, respectively from the north and the south. Much too often this swath of mountainous and jungle frontier is seen as a territory for division between established states, without much thought to the major influences that impact the frontiers’ peoples and their aspirations.
