The recent history of Tibet has been one of mourning. Despite the relative impenetrability of its mountains, it was invaded and occupied by armies of the Communist Peoples Republic of China in 1950. After an unsuccessful popular revolt in 1959, thousands of Tibetan refugees fled across the Himalayan Mountains to India and Nepal, and a government in exile was established under the Dalai Lama, the traditional leader of Tibet. Since that time, the refugee communities have grown larger every year, as more Tibetans flee severe political and cultural repression in their native land. Today, despite one of the most successful resettlement programs in modern history, the needs of over 500,000 refugees exceed available resources. In response to these events cultural survival established the Tibetan Rug Weaving project. This book provides deep insight to various dimensions of issues relating to the subject. As the book addresses this crucial issue quite deftly, it is hoped that it would prove to be a source of great information for the reader.
