Publisher's Summary

'In a Nutshell', the new audiobook series from Naxos AudioBooks, continues with a fascinating history of Tibet.

Part of China for many years, yet with a clearly distinctive culture (with the central devotion of its people being to Buddhism and the Dalai Lama), Tibet has a unique character in the panoply of world nations. Here we have an independent view of its history and the customs and beliefs of its people - and a commentary on the current situation.

Good, but not great.

I would have preferred the 5 gallon bucket version of this book to the nutshell. Much of the information is extremely valuable but some of the information is obviously bias, and could use a deepening of cultural context. This book has a very English colonialist format. Tibet is so rich, it is hard to grasp in such a short snapshot, and you would be doing yourself a disservice if this is your primary source on this culture.

Short and informative

This was short and informative. The narrator did a good job. China blows. Free Tibet.
