  • The essence of this book is twenty four letters stored for decades on the shelves of the National Museum of Buriatia- reproduced here for the first time both as facsimile copies and in English translation. The letters cover a pivotal period of modern Tibet's history- 1911-1925- when the Great Game entered its last dramatic stage. The British Raj and Russian emperor, Bolsheviks and academic explorers, Chinese president and French travelers- all these personages are discussed in the letters penned by the most important figures in the history of modern Tibet- the Thirteenth Dalai Lama Thupten Gyatso- and his well-known favorite officials, Sholkang Shappe and Tsarong Shappe. From hand to hand, envoys and pilgrims passed these letters on their long journey from Lhasa to South Siberia. Arriving at their destination at last, they were presented to their addressee. This was Agvan Dorzhiev, a personal tutor of the Dalai Lama, key person in Tibet-Russia relation and a man of outstanding significance in the Snowy Land's modern history.
    The Letters reveal the intricacies and entanglements of hidden Tibetan politics and the desperate efforts of the Tibetan authorities of the time to maintain the independence of their country. The book certainly serves as a good first hand source for students of Tibet's political history and the Great Game.
