Detail: This book offers the reader a challenging new interpretation of Tibetan political history in the early years of the 20th century. Using evidence gleaned largely from Russian, Indian and British archival sources, author Dr.Nikolai S. Kuleshov puts forward a persuasive thesis and sheds new light on the relations between Tibet and these political powers.
