Latse Journal Volume 8 (2014–2015) has a special focus on the history and development of Tibetan-language periodicals with contributions by Gendun Rabsal, Isrun Engelhardt, Tshewang Tamding, and Chief Editor Pema Bhum. We are also pleased to reproduce in this issue the manuscript version of the autobiography of Dorjiev, a significant figure in early modern Tibetan history. Other contributors include Françoise Robin with a book review of a new novel by Tsering Dondrup, and Susan Meinheit, who inaugurates our new feature “Library Spotlight” with a profile of the Tibetan collections at the Library of Congress.
