Torrance, CA, U.S.A.: Heian International Publishing, Incorporated, 2000. First Edition. Folio. Pictorial boards, 95 pp. illustrated throughout with color photographs. As new in dustjacket, mylar cover. Dharamsala—literally, a place for shelter—is a city seemingly predestined to serve as the headquarters of the government-in-exile of the Fourteenth Dalai Lama. A tiny dot on the eastern Indian landscape, founded as a hill station by the British in 1846, Dharamsala is steeped in both Indian and Tibetan history, and today boasts a cosmopolitan populace. The colorful photographs here of the land and its people, along with a warmly personal text, portray the determination of the Tibetans to preserve their culture and identity. Realizing that they would not return to their homeland soon, the Dalai Lama and his followers built temples and monasteries, libraries and markets, and, as India's Jawaharlal Nehru counseled, ensured their nation's survival through the education of their children.. First Edition. Pictorial Boards. New/New. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.
