Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8185102465 / 9788185102467; Hardcover; New; New; 
The liberalization of political and intellectual life in China and the rise of Tibetan exile communities throughout the world have produced a resurgence of spoken and written Tibetan. These developments, together with increasing contacts between Western scholars and Tibetans, have created a widening circle of English-speakers-in government, business, academia, and elsewhere-who need to speak or write Tibetan with precision and clarity. For these people, and for Others who want to communicate with Tibetans in their own language, Professor Goldstein's Dictionary will be an indispensable aid.The first scholarly English-Tibetan dictionary, as well as the only one that is semantically sensitive, this work specifies the Tibetan terms that correspond to the submeanings of a single English term. Containing roughly 16,000 main entries, most of which have multiple subentries, the Dictionary treats a total of 45,000 lexical items. Each entry includes the written Tibetan orthography. Grammatical features are also noted, and all examples of usage are presented with both the Tibetan orthography and the romanization of the written Tibetan. An introductory essay familiarizes users with the main features of Tibetan grammar.Printed Pages: 363. 103685

Half of the words are read by implications." This Tibetan saying explains the main difficulty Westerners face in learning to read Tibetan fluently. Unlike previously available materials, this book will allow beginners to understand the logic of Tibetan grammar and syntax through graded reading and narrative explanations. The large glossary, which includes particles and is indexed by page, will serve as an invaluable reference for readers of Tibetan at all levels. The reading course includes the Tibetan alphabet and its pronunciation, as well as a wide range of modern literary styles from literature, history, current affairs, newspapers, and even communist political essays. Cassette tapes to assist students learning on their own are available through Case Western Reserve University's Center for Research on Tibet. "This [grammar] will make the study of written Tibetan a lot easier and more pleasant that it has been up to now."-James A. Matisoff, University of California, Berkeley.

7 Melvyn C.Goldstein, Ben Jiao and Tanzen Lhundrup
On the Cultural Revolution in Tibet: The Nyemo Incident of 1969
University of California Press; Los Angeles, California, USA; 2009; 0520256824 / 9780520256828; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Among the conflicts to break out during the Cultural Revolution in Tibet, the most famous took place in the summer of 1969 in Nyemo, a county to the south and west of Lhasa. In this incident, hundreds of villagers formed a mob led by a young nun who was said to be possessed by a deity associated with the famous warrior-king Gesar. In their rampage the mob attacked, mutilated, and killed county officials and local villagers as well as People's Liberation Army troops. This groundbreaking book, the first on the Cultural Revolution in Tibet, revisits the Nyemo Incident, which has long been romanticized as the epitome of Tibetan nationalist resistance against China. Melvyn C. Goldstein, Ben Jiao, and Tanzen Lhundrup demonstrate that far from being a spontaneous battle for independence, this violent event was actually part of a struggle between rival revolutionary groups and was not ethnically based. On the Cultural Revolution in Tibet proffers a sober assessment of human malleability and challenges the tendency to view every sign of unrest in Tibet in ethno-nationalist terms. Printed pages: 252 alongwith 3 b/w maps. 034669

The dictionary includes lexical items characteristic of the special written genre employed by Tibetan government officials up to 1959 but also lists new terminology used in the Tibetan exile communities in South Asia. It contains both the core lexical terminology found in everyday life and standard modern writing and many proverbs and sayings that appear frequently in contemporary literary materials. All entries include spoken pronunciation, and the dictionary provides thousands of illustrative sentences. Printed Pages: 1212. 032195
