Between the 1950s and 1990s, Lhasa's population increased from 30,000 to 400,000, which of course transformed much of the Lhasa valley. This magnificently illustrated volume is the result of a 1995-2000 intensive architectural survey of the Old City, parts of which are now UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The atlas includes ancient and new maps, satellite photographs; ground plans and location list of 350 historical buildings. Future public policy is discussed and pointers given on the management and protection of the buildings and townscape. With bibliography and index.
