Item description for Tibetan Borderlands. Brill's Tibetan Studies Library, Volume 10/2 (v. 2) by P. Christiaan Klieger...

Since the occupation of Tibet by the Peoples Republic of China in 1959, former border principalities and feudatories of the former realm of the Dalai Lama have broken away and have developed sociopolitical and economic bonds with other states. Sikkim, Bhutan, Ladakh, and the Tibeto-Burman speaking regions of Burma, Nepal, and others have all developed strong ethnic identities apart from Tibet. Eleven well-known scholars working in these borderlands of Tibet present in this volume aspects of their current historical, linguistic, and ethnographic research. Originally presented at the Oxford University meeting of the International Association of Tibetan Studies in 2003, the volume provides a unique panoply of cultural diversity within the contemporary Tibeto-Burman speaking world. Illustrated, with introduction.

More About P. Christiaan Klieger

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! P. Christiaan Klieger is senior curator of history at the Oakland Museum of California and research associate at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. A cultural anthropologist, he has done fieldwork in remote corners of Burma, Tibet, India, Nepal, and Hawaii, and is the author of many books on the people and history of these areas. Dr. Klieger became interested in the Fleischmann's when he was assigned to write a background history of a private island in Hawaii once owned by a Fleischmann heir. This island, Coconut Island, was the prototype for television's Gilligan's Island. Digging deeper and deeper into the family history, this snapshot emerged.
