Books for Understanding: Tibet

Yesterday, the Association of American University Presses unveiled its newest books for understanding bibliography which covers Tibet.

The Association of American University Presses offers a fantastic free online resource tool for people looking for the best books to make sense of current events. Called Books for Understanding, each list compiles university press titles under specific subject headings and often contains information on how to reach an author for media interviews or further information. Lists cover such varied topics as New Orleans, same-sex marriage, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict; and the newest list posted this week covers the turmoil in Tibet. The list intends to help researchers find out more about the recent civil unrest that led to demonstrations by Buddhist monks in Tibet and at the lighting of the Olympic torch ceremony. The list also includes books covering the history of Tibet and its religious and artistic contributions.

Columbia University Press is a member of the AAUP and is pleased to be a part of the Books for Understanding initiative.
