About this product
- DescriptionThis title presents a landmark debate on the occupation of Tibet and the movement for independence. This unprecedented dialogue between a dissenting Chinese intellectual and Tibet's outstanding national historian breaks taboos on both sides of the decades-long conflict. Wang Lixiong and Tsering Shakya begin with a consideration of some of the bitter paradoxes of Tibet's history under Communist rule. Wang locates their roots in the confrontation of an alien bureaucracy and fear-stricken religion, whereas Shakya portrays an anti-colonial struggle carried out in the name of nationalism and in defense of cultural automy. Both writers then confront China's recent crackdown on the newly invigorated resistance movement, offering insightful critiques of the Chinese occupation - and providing a compelling vision of what must w be done.
- Author BiographyWANG LIXIONG'S books include China Tidal Wave, Sky Burial: The Fate of Tibet, and Yellow Peril, a political fantasy that has gained widespread popularity in China despite having been banned by the Communist regime.
