|Abstract:||difference, operated as primary ontologizing icons and indexes of social positions, subjectivities, histories, and relationships amidst rapid social change” (288). What left the biggest impression on this reviewer were the ways in which Tibetans narratives revealed the importance of both gender and history, that is, how the present is understood through gendered subjectivity and the ethnic past. Makley’s linguistic analysis of proverbs and discourses demonstrates this in a sharp-eyed way—such as the use of Chinese words for particular terms in otherwise Tibetan sentences. Despite an at-times dense and overanalytical jargon, particularly in the first chapter, the author succeeds in depicting a complex and vivid picture of rapid social change in a Tibetan society. Yet, the author is careful not to generalize the particular situation of Labrang as a parameter for other Tibetan societies. This is most prudent, given the diverse local lay and monastic histories and present social relations and situations among Tibetan nomads, farmers, and urbanites in China.|
