A History of Western Tibet is based on foreign and western Tibetan sources
of information. The western Tibetan sources of information are records on
stones and on paper. Records on stones cover the period 200 B.C. to 1900
A.D. Records on paper are the chronicles of the Kings of Leh. Though these
are edited ones, much remains to be done.
The readers will find A History of Western Tibet interesting which is the
outcome of scholarly enterprise and research as much as of familiarity with
the country and the people.
The book is profusely illustrated, and illustrations and maps vis-a-vis the
text make the readers move apace with the different phases of the history
of the Western Tibet.
