A History of Modern Tibet since 1947

By Tsering Shakya

Based on unpublished primary sources, this text provides detailed accounts of the following: the covert political manoeuvrings in Tibet and the role of the Tibetan, Chinese and British governments; the Dalai Lama's escape in 1959; and the CIAs involvement in establishing a secret military base.

"...will undoubtedly take its place as the indispensable account of modern Tibetan history."--Literary Review

This definitive history of Tibet is based entirely on unpublished primary sources and written by a Western-educated Tibetan author. It shatters the popular perception of Tibet as an isolated Shangri-la unaffected by broader international developments and rises above the simplistic dualism so often encountered in accounts of Tibet's contested recent history. Charting a clear course through the intricacies of the historical record, Tsering Shakya gives a balanced account of Tibet's desperate attempts to maintain her independence and safeguard her cultural identity. "At last, the history of Tibet we have been waiting for. It will irritate both Chinese and Tibetan chauvinists as it explodes their myths, misunderstandings, and propaganda."--Jonathan Mirsky
