      The essays in this volume all attempt to document and interpret ways in
      which Tibetan peoples have identified and related to different categories
      of space and place as being unique or of higher ontological value, and as
      being set apart from many other spheres and sites of human life. The
      collection reflects the multitude of traditions of thinking about space and
      place which can be found in Tibetan culture.

      Each essay constitutes a separate chapter and they are arranged into four
      parts relative to their predominant themes like, Social Identity &
      Territory, Ritual Spaces & Places, Hidden Countries & Holy Lands and
      Colonialism & modernity.
