comment What is a good, authoritative source on the history of Tibet?
The Great Game: On Secret Service in High Asia and Trespassers on the Roof of the World: The Race for Lhasa by Peter Hopkirk have large sections on Tibetan history during the 19th century. Younghusband's books may help you as well if you are looking for a primary source.

@JimThio: I know that there is some cross pollination between eastern and western martial arts. I find it really unlikely that sword styles are the exception.

comment Why and when did agriculture lose its prestige?
What about the early Roman republic? To serve in the legions you needed to be a land owner but those were quiet often equated with farmers. The consequences of that policy is what propelled Marius to reform the army.
