To Lhasa In Disguise is a vivid account of a secret adventure to Lhasa, the Forbidden City of the Buddhas. The author describes some of the varied experiences, in the first person, which he encountered during his secret expeditions to the sacred city. Himself an anthropologist he makes a fascinating observation of the Tibetan people with their customs, their language, religion and literature, all of which are in some way unique. It records a general but accurate description of the manners and beliefs, including some of the extraordinary institutions which exist in the government of Lhasa.
During his stay in Lhasa the author secured numerous priceless manuscripts and had unequaled opportunities for studying the inner life of the Tibetan people and the working of their institutions. He has given the first exact information concerning the contemporary diplomatic, political, military, industrial and above all monastic situations in a country which occupies such an important strategic centre that it is of interest to all students of Asiatic and world affairs.
