Title:Himalayan Passages: Tibetan and Newar Studies in Honor of Hubert Decleer
Size:152 x 228 mm
Over decades, hundreds of American undergraduates spending a term abroad have been introduced to Tibetan culture in India, Nepal, and China by Hubert Decleer. A number went on to become prominent scholars in the field at institutions such as Yale, Berkeley, and Georgetown, and as a tribute to him they have put together this collection of cutting-edge research in Himalayan studies, bringing together contributions of this new generation with those of senior researchers in the field. This new research on the religion and culture of the Himalayan Buddhist world spans a broad range of subjects, periods, and approaches, and the diversity and strength of the contributions ensures Himalayan Passages will be warmly welcomed by scholars, travellers, and Tibetan Buddhists alike. Contributors include Donald S. Lopez, Jr., Leonard van der Kuijp, Kabir Mansingh Heimsath, Alexander von Rospatt, Sara S. Jacoby, Franz-Karl Ehrhard, Ernst Steinkellner, Jacob P. Dalton, Iain Sinclair, Anne Vergati, Punya Prasad Parajuli, and Dominique Townsend.
