Dreamworld Tibet: Western Illusions by Martin Brauen

Description

For centuries Westerners have held idealised or patronising views of Tibet, from Shangri-La to heathen yak-herders. More recent times have seen the sinister distortions of the Nazis, Hollywood misrepresentations and the rapid encroachment of the commercial-industrial complex. The grotesqueries of Chinese involvement and their effect on Western views are perhaps the most telling of all...Anthropologist Martin Brauen examines for the first time in considerable detail the multi-dimensional nature of Western understanding of the rich and ancient culture of Tibet, from first contact to the present day.
