"Remarkable . . . ambitious . . . [van Schaik] writes like a storyteller, keeping his reader intrigued."--Michael Sheehy, Buddhadharma magazine


"A marvellous achievement, Tibet: A History provides a brilliant introduction to the ancient and varied culture of Tibet. Van Schaik expertly combines detailed research with compelling storytelling. Rich with details and lively vignettes, his narrative draws the reader into an imaginative universe, a world that will at once fascinate and complicate one's understanding of Tibet. This book will reward long-time students and casual readers alike."--Jacob P. Dalton, author of The Taming of the Demons: Violence and Liberation in Tibetan Buddhism
"Tibet: A History is an important and major history of Tibet written in narrative form by a leading scholar, in a style that is accessible, balanced and engaging, yet full of nuance, detail and up-to-date research findings."--Robert J. Barnett, Director of Modern Tibetan Studies, Columbia University
