There are few regions that have been more misunderstood by the West than Tibet. It is still often portrayed in the West as the “Shangri-la” that was described in the 1933 novel Lost Horizon, one of the earliest references to Tibet in English-speaking culture. In Tibet: History, Culture, and Religion, Professor Constance Kassor will show you the real, multi-dimensional Tibet and its people who live on the “Roof of the World.” In 24 fascinating lectures, you will learn about the issues that form the existential threat few other regions face: This is the real Tibet.
