Description

Tensions over the political status of Tibet are escalating every day. The Dalai Lama has gained broad international sympathy in his appeals for autonomy from China, yet the Chinese government maintains a hard-line position against it. What is the history of the conflict? Can the two sides come to an acceptable compromise? In this thoughtful analysis, distinguished professor and longtime Tibet analyst Melvyn C. Goldstein presents a balanced view of the conflict as well as a proposal for the future. Clearly written and carefully argued, this book will become the source for anyone seeking to understand the "Tibet Question" during this dangerous turning point in its turbulent history.
