About The Historical Map Series

This map series and its companion essay constitute a work in progress. We have used only data whose veracity we could substantiate through historical sources, which often led to the decision to exclude certain information. Thus, some regions in the borderlands area contain dense clusters of Tibetan place names, while others are devoid of names.

Additionally new Contemporary Chinese administrative boundaries are derived from various provincial maps. The PRC Administrative Handbook (Xingzhen Qu Hua Jiance; Beijing: 1995) also provided important information.

Academia Tibetica is a working group of scholars and institution devoted to critically examining historical and contemporary questions on land and life in the greater Tibetan Plateau region.

This map series is distributed with the aid of the International Campaign for Tibet.

Copies may be ordered through their office:

International Campaign For Tibet, 1825 K Street NW, Suite 520, Washington DC 20006; Tel: (202) 785 1515; Fax: (202) 785 4343.
