By illuminating the political aspects of the trlku institution, Schwieger shapes a broader history of the relationship between the Dalai Lama and the Emperor of China, as well as a richer understanding of the Qing Dynasty as an inner Asian empire, the modern fate of the Mongol empire, and current Sino-Tibetan relations. Unlike other pre-twentieth century Tibetan histories, this volume rejects hagiographic texts in favour of diplomatic, legal, and social sources held in the private, monastic, and bureaucratic archives of old Tibet."@en ;
