Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of names, concepts and terms that occur in the book Nomads of Eastern Tibet: Social Organization and Economy of a Pastoral Estate in the Kingdom of Dege. It also includes a series of reference material available under the Brill's Tibetan Studies Library. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order. The central focus of Rinzin's work is the most crucial and controversial relationship in pre-modern Tibetan societies, that ensuing between a local "lord" (dpon) and his "dependents" ('khor pa). Rinzin's work, written several decades ago now, reflects a distinctive milieu of European anthropological thought which was more current during the 1970s and 1980s, although it has remained one that continues to speak clearly to certain of our interests and debates today.

Keywords: Kingdom of Dege; nomads; pastoral estate; Rinzin Thargyal; Tibetan studies
