Research output: Book/Report/Inaugural speech/Farewell speechBook editingAcademic


Tibetan communities across China are undergoing rapid and potentially irreversible social, economic and cultural changes. This book presents new perspectives on the current situation of Tibetans and provides a baseline for assessing the magnitude and direction of future changes. From a range of disciplinary perspectives, the authors provide original analyses based on first-hand fieldwork and a careful scrutiny of official documents and data as they examine three key aspects of Tibet’s development: pastoral production, labor and social policy. This collection of essays represents the most up-to-date and comprehensive assessment of development transitions on the Tibetan Plateau, and forms an important contribution to development studies of contemporary societies undergoing rapid change within China.
