The Dalai Lama's secret temple : Tantric wall paintings from Tibet by Ian Baker( Book )

"At the heart of this book are 150 color photographs of the Lukhang temple and its murals, taken in the most challenging conditions by photographer Thomas Laird. Ian Baker's text, which places these remarkable works within their historical, cultural and artistic context, is augmented by translations of the original Tibetan inscriptions that accompany many of the wall paintings. Introduced by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, whose commentary on specific images enriches this work immeasurably, the book is further embellished by lively ink brush drawings by contemporary Tibetan masters." "The detail, color and impact of this treasure of Tibetan Buddhist spirituality can at last be experienced outside the Lukhang's secret chapel."--Jacket
Into Tibet : the CIA's first atomic spy and his secret expedition to Lhasa by Thomas Laird( Book )

"For over fifty years the CIA has closely guarded the identity of the first agent killed in the line of duty - the unnamed First Star on the outfit's Wall of Honor. That agent was Douglas Mackiernan. His unprecedented atomic intelligence operations helped shape both Central Asia and the CIA as we know them today. His work remains so sensitive that the Agency, even now, will neither confirm nor deny his existence. A riveting expose of international intrigue, Into Tibet reveals the extraordinary still-classified missions that sent Mackiernan and his partner, Frank Bessac, into the heart of the Cold War."--Jacket

East of Lo Monthang : in the land of Mustang by Peter Matthiessen( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Italian and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the spring of 1992, writer Peter Matthiessen and correspondent-photographer Thomas Laird traveled deep in the secret valley of Sao Kohla, tucked high in the northernmost reaches of the Himalaya. They were the first Westerners to venture there in thirty years. From the central city of Lo Monthang, known as "Mustang" the two travelers, along with their entourage of government chaperones, attendants, and horsemen, began a horseback adventure across arid plateaus and through narrow river chasms to reach precariously perched monasteries long since abandoned to the rose finch and black redstart. They camped among nomad herdsmen who spent nights worrying about the threat posed to their goats by the deadly snow leopards. Matthiessen's expansive narrative and Laird's spectacular photographs reveal a place where mountains five miles high cast their shadows over the deepest canyon in the world; where 150-million-year-old fossils rise to the light of day at 13,000 feet; and where mountain nomads spend their lives herding their flocks across desolate slopes and through desert valleys, "utterly lost in the eternal earth and air."--Back cover
Xizang de gu shi : yu Dalai Lama tan Xizang li shi = The story of Tibet = by Thomas Laird( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in Chinese and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the course of three years, journalist Thomas Laird spent more than sixty hours with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in candid, one-on-one interviews in Dharamsala, India. They discussed His Holiness's lifelong study of Buddhism and his beliefs on history, science, and reincarnation. Through these conversations, Laird and the Dalai Lama laid the cornerstones of a popular history of Tibet, something that has not been done with a Dalai Lama since the 1600s. It reveals the presence, character, and ideas of the Dalai Lama, and it introduces the reader to fourteen hundred years of civilization, myth, and spirituality
