Reviews

"Geoffrey Samuel provides a welcome introduction to Tibetan Buddhism and the religious history of Tibet. Concise, lucid, and authoritative, this is one of the best and most useful introductions available to date. It will no doubt become an indispensable reference for students"- Bryan J. Cuevas, Florida State University, USA

"This book highlights the practical dimensions of the religious culture of Tibet. Samuel provides a current and accessible guide to the roles Buddhism plays in the lives of Tibetan people, as identities of place and religion continue to be negotiated as Tibetan Buddhism is defined in the contemporary world." - Douglas S. Duckworth, East Tennessee State University, USA
