The Sacred Myth of Shangri-La
Author: Peter Bishop
Tibet, Travel, Writing and the Western Creation of Sacred Landscape Peter Bishop teaches at the South Australian College of advanced Education and has travelled widely in Tibet. Each generation creates its Own Tibet, drawing upon accounts of Tibetan and Himalayan travel and exploration, both fact and fiction, the author surveys the many ways in which these myths have developed and changed from the late eighteenth-century to the present day and he analyses these myths from a Jungian standpoint. Altogether, this is a masterful and persuasive study of the phenomenology of Western fantasy-making.
