About this book

In weaving together the life stories of five extraordinary contemporary Tibetans involved in environmental protection, Tibetan Environmentalists in China shows Tibetans as both products of an admirable culture and as complex individuals negotiating religious ideals, economic change, and sociopolitical constraints. In short, Tibetan Environmentalists in China opens up a whole new way of understanding Tibet.
