The Blessings of Bhutan Reviews

A captivating and splendid account of a complex nation on the cusp of tradition and modernity. Bhutan is distinctive - from its social structures to its development philosophy of Gross National Happiness. The Blessings of Bhutan is based on extensive travel and interviews. Written in an accessible style, the authors blend narrative about the country's history, religion, arts, and governance with lively personal anecdotes. It is an excellent contribution to the study of contemporary Bhutan that will appeal to laymen and scholars alike. - Karma Ura, Director of the Centre for Bhutan Studies; ""The blessings of Bhutan are many, including the appearance of this lyrical account of the country's many unique and fascinating aspects. Because they are among the Westerners most familiar with Bhutanese life, Blyth and Russ are able to penetrate well beyond the Shangri-la myth and show that, while parts of such an otherworldly myth apply, this Himalayan Kingdom is brimful of surprises, contradictions, and modern dilemmas."" - K. E. S. Kirby Dorji, writer/editor, United Nations consultant, longtime resident of Bhutan
