An excellent survey of Tibet and the geology, and early history of its people, with chapters on the rise of the Himalayas and the development of plant and animal life; and the growth of Tibetan tribes to the flowering of the empire in the 8th and 9th centuries.
The formation of the land and the evolution of the environment over geological time are decribed in summaries of recent scientific research on the Tibetan plateau. The origin and development of the Tibetan tribes and their early kings are discussed, following the accounts of authoritative Tibetan histories. A survey of the political and cultural accomplishments of the Tibetan people in the era of the Dharma kings is based on eighth and ninth century documents as well as the records of Tibet`s neighbours and other sources.
This survey of the oldest periods of Tibetan history gives the general reader a balanced overview and provides a good background for those interested in the further study of Tibetan culture and civilization.
