AUTHOR

Rizvi, Janet

SUMMARY

This highly readable volume offers the first authoritative account of the history, religions, culture, and social conditions of Ladakh, the land often celebrated as the last outpost of Tibetan civilization. Relatively isolated from the rest of India as well as from Tibet by the world's highest mountains, Ladakh stands at the crossroads where Islam and Buddhism met and blended to produce an entirely unique culture. Writing with feeling and personal knowledge born out of years of study and years spent in the region, Janet Rizvi presents much more than a mere coffee-table pictorial guide. She explores the region's rich oral tradition, and its literature and artefacts, as well as its trade and economy. The volume also includes appendices on the Jesuits in Western Tibet and additional information for visitors, a glossary, select bibliography, and index. Now available in paperback for the first time, Ladakh will provide tourists, travelers, scholars, and general readers with hours of enjoyment.Rizvi, Janet is the author of 'Ladakh: Crossroads of High Asia' with ISBN 9780195623901 and ISBN 0195623908.
