This volume, published as a catalog to the exhibition of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, represents the first in-depth examination of the until then unknown history of the arms and weapons of Tibet. The birthplace of one of the world's great religions, Tibet was also the stage of many political, artistic, and cultural changes, which involved all the surrounding Himalayan countries. A study of the evolution of the arms and tools of warfare developed in this area of the world brings to light the strong influences of the various cultures which left their imprint on the Tibetan people and tradition. The numerous essays are written by leading scholars on the subject, and complete a beautiful catalog. 307 pages. 10.25 x 11.25 inches.

Lavishly illustrated with B&W and full-color photographs presenting the various pieces of the exhibition as well as some historic illustrations. Massive historical documentation, with essays by leading scholars, is included with catalog.
