1 Marshall, Steven and Schell, Orville (Essays by) ; Spiegel, Mickey (Exile Accounts by) ; Sperling, Elliot (Introduction by) Tibet Since 1950: Silence, Prison, or Exile
0893817945 / 9780893817947; Still in shrink wrap. "This book contains more than one hundred color and black-and-white photographs of Tibet in the last half-century. Several recent photographs of Chinese prisons in "eastern" Tibet were taken secretly with a telephoto lens, and have never been published in the West before. The book contains essays as well as interviews with Tibetan exiles. As a documentary history, the book includes the texts of Chinese edicts such as a decree on "re-education" in Tibetan monasteries in China's Qinghai province. The book illustrates the extent of China's repression and the ongoing violation of basic human rights in Tibet, through arbitrary arrest, torture, unfair trials, and the secular takeover of religion.

2 Suzuki, Daisetz Teitaro The Training of the Zen Buddhist Monk
0936385235 / 9780936385235; This is perhaps the best introduction to Zen and the life of the Zen monk. By means of a direct and succinct description of the training that a Zen Buddhist monk undergoes, Dr. Suzuki has given us the most precise picture possible of Zen in life. The 43 illustrations give a unique value to the book. The artist has depicted here the record of his own experiences in going through all the disciplinary measures pertaining to the life of Zen. As Dr. Suzuki said, "Zen ought to be studied not only in its theoretical aspects, as a unique product of the Oriental mind, but in its practical aspect as it is to be seen in the Zendo life. This is the chief motive for my writing this book. " Includes 17 appendices.; Octavo (standard book size); 160 pages
