Published in April 2013 by the University of Georgia Press, in “Geographical Diversions: Tibetan Trade, Global Transactions”, Tina Harris explores the social and economic transformations taking place along one trade route that winds its way across China, Nepal, Tibet, and India.
According to the University of Georgia Press website: “Geographical Diversions focuses on two generations of traders who exchange goods such as sheep wool, pang gdan aprons, and more recently, household appliances. Exploring how traders “make places,” Harris examines the creation of geographies of trade that work against state ideas of what trade routes should look like.”
