The Tibetan district of Tsari with its sacred snow-covered peak of Pure Crystal Mountain has long been a place of symbolic and ritual significance for Tibetan peoples. In this book, Toni Huber provides the first thorough study of a major Tibetan Buddhist pilgrimage center and cult mountain, and explores the esoteric and popular traditions of ritual there. The main focus is on the period of the 1940s and '50s, just prior to the 1959 Lhasa uprising and subsequentTibetan diaspora into South Asia. Huber's work thus documents Tibetan life patterns and cultural traditions which have largely disappeared with the advent of Chinese colonial modernity in Tibet. In addition to the work's documentary content, Huber offers discussion and analysis of the construction andmeaning of Tibetan cultural categories of space, place, and person, and the practice of ritual and organization of traditional society in relation to them.Mississippi represented the Old South and all that it stood for perhaps more than any other state. Christopher Morris takes a close look at one of those "typically" southern communities, Jefferson Davis's Warren County, the northern-most of the five old river counties located in the state's southwestern corner. By exploring Warren County's history Morris traces the evolution of Old South society from its pioneer origins to its end at the onset of the Civil War. Thisis a study of a society's development, a snapshot of the people and their community in crisis and demonstrates the significance of change over time in the antebellum South.
