Tibet has suffered extreme political turmoil and upheaval over the last 50 odd years. Occupied in 1950, Red Guards destroyed thousands of official buildings and holy places during the Cultural Revolution, and religious freedom and traditional education are still severely under threat. Due to the strength of Tibetan faith in Buddha, in the Dalai Lama, and against the odds, many buildings have been reconstructed, their devotion and belief remain extraordinarily strong. Buddhism permeates every aspect of a Tibetan's life, whether living in Tibet or in exile in Nepal, India or the United States. A magnificent and time-stopping work, The Path to Buddha is divided into five parts, in which we see the monks in animated discussion, meditation and prayer; and we follow the devout believers on their arduous journeys to prayer. The two main chapters are interspersed with sections of portraits of this proud and dignified people whose own innate sense of their own being can be seen in the simplest of things, such as the way they dress and adorn themselves.

Beautiful and evocative colour photographs of the temples of Angkor, Cambodia. The globally acclaimed Magnum photographer Steve McCurry has beautifully and evocatively photographed the temples of Angkor in Cambodia, which rank amongst the world's most impressive monuments. Over one hundred of his images of the site are collected in this stunning book, which documents a magical world of carved gods, weathered masonry, tangled vegetation and orange-robed monks. Angkor was the capital of the Khmer rulers from the end of the ninth century to the mid-fifteenth. Each built a state temple at the capital surrounded by walls, moats and embankments which were laid out in accordance to cosmological precepts. Designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO, the temples attract tourists, archaeologists and art historians, as well as remaining a pilgrimage destination for Buddhist monks. McCurry first visited Angkor on an assignment for National Geographic magazine, for whom he has taken famous photographs all over the world. He has made many return visits, capturing overall a sublime portrait of the buildings, sculpture and people of Angkor. The winner of numerous honors, including first prize in the World Press awards and the Robert Capa Gold Medal, McCurry has previously published Portraits and South Southeast (both with Phaidon). The photographs are accompanied by an informative introduction on the history and meaning of Angkor by John Guy, a leading authority on the cultural history of Southeast Asia. Guy is Curator of Indian and Southeast Asian sculpture at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and Consultant to UNESCO on historical monuments in Southeast Asia.
