How does it work, consistent with copyright law? Quite simply, when you visit NaderLibrary.com you are visiting a library, and the same rules apply.

Yeeahhhhh, uh, that's uh, a novel way of thinking...

Thanks for this nickyskye. It's good to know that someone is taking an interest in Tibet, unlike me, which I ought to correct... :(

Were those pictures all of CIA guys? I couldn't figure them out, shots from a random hippies photo album?

If you are interested in the CIA, there's a funny read, a book called
The Wizards of Langley by Jeffrey Richelson,
that reveals what a bunch of bumbling bureaucrats they really are.

If you are interested in Tibetan Buddhism, there's a funny read, a book called
RE-Enchatment: Tibetan Buddhism comes to the West by Jeffery Paine,
that reveals what a bunch of bumbling rufugees they really are.

Both authors are PhD.'s named Jeffrey (or Jeffery) living in the D.C. area.

Xurando, that album of Western hippies who traveled to Asia in the 1960's and 70's is how I came to make this post. I was browsing the photographs of old friends and came across the one of the CIA operative. I wanted to know more about him. That's the best photo of him on the web. The research I did in looking up his story ended up as this post.

Man, now I'm wondering how many metafilter posts have more "favorites" than comments. Maybe it's just that we're all a bit exhausted from talking about this topic, but it's still good to have more info. Thanks!
