    This volume forms a sequel to the author's Tibet: Past and Present and The

    people of Tibet. Like them, it is in part an historical account, in part a

    description of conditions in the earlier part of the twentieth century. Sir

    Charles Bell traces the history of the introduction to Buddhism, of the

    resistance and general decay of the older magic-worship of Ponism, and of

    the developments which have taken place within Tibetan Buddhism itself. The

    latter part of the book deals more particularly with the religious

    organization, with life in the great monasteries and with the religious

    customs and beliefs of the people. The illustrations are from the author's

    own photographs taken in Tibet, Sikkim and Bhutan.
