Book Description University of Bristol, 1994. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. The building of a road into Zangskar, a remote valley in Ladakh, inevitably brought change into a community which had remained unaltered for many generations, protected by the barrier of the high Himalaya. This book offers a series of integrated reports on the results of an interdisciplinary survey which was undertaken just before the road was built, and describes the traditional and largely self-sufficient Himalayan Buddhist population before it became part, economically, of modern India and began to change irrevocably. This book tells the story of how the Zangskari people not only survive but live well in an exceptionally severe climate at high altitude. A major contribution to contemporary research in human ecology and regional development, and contains important new information on Himalayan geography and the social anthropology of the Tibetan-speaking peoples of northern India. In good overall condition with a slightly worn and faded dust jacket, spotted upper page edges, a couple of wrongly cut page corners, a cracked hinge but overall sound binding. 866 text pages plus indexes, appendices, and around 50 pages of b/w photographs at the rear. Incredibly comprehensive and an invaluable resource. Seller Inventory # 003261
