Full description: 

The Himalaya is a cornucopia and convergence of sovereign states, civilisational interaction and indigenous cultures across a stretch of two thousand miles. Its primary cultural influences haves been that of Tibetan and Indic civilisations, respectively from the north and south. Much too often this swath of mountainous and jungle frontier is seen as a territory for division between established states, without much thought to the major influences that impact the frontiers' peoples and their aspirations. The book affords a mountain-top-view of the Himalaya from the perspectives of its peoples rather than exclusively those who have, over the years, come to possess its territories.
