Synopsis

This 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 autonomy. 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 now be done.
