Tucci describes in detail the growth and ramification of Tibetan Buddhism and the characteristics of its various schools and in a masterly exposition he deals with the neglected subject of Tibetan art. The now vanished pattern of daily life, the commonplaces of another age - all this he evokes in vivid detail, the ordinary Tibetan's taste in books, and the detailed ordering of the society he lived in, are set forth with equal attention.
