Commoners and Nobles: Hereditary Divisions in Tibet
Responsible organisation
2005 (English)Book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Written by one of the few scholars who has been able to conduct long-term fieldwork in the TAR, this study explores how Tibetans manoeuvre within two contradictory value systems - those of old Tibet and the new PRC - balancing between ideals and pragmatism.

More specifically, it asks how and why it is that the social categories of pre-communist Lhasa persist and are made relevant in daily life despite decades of Chinese rule and the comprehensive restructuring of Tibetan society. More specifically, particular attention is given to the former nobility of Lhasa and their ascribed role as custodians of Tibetan culture.
