To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This book is extremely well researched and well written. It provides an in-depth account of the struggles that have challenged Tibet, historically, and now. Another reviewer noted that this is not a book about "Tibet itself", which seems a little short-sighted IMO- it is not a travel guide, true, but it DOES provide a holistic and comprehensive picture of Tibet, the country, the people, and the history. Overall a fantastic book, informative, and well written by two well-known scholars.
