Detailed Product Description
London, 1984, 1st UK edition. 383 pp, color photos, bibliography, index, endpaper maps. The story of the Tibetan refugees in India. For over 2000 years Tibet remained a feudal kingdom of peasants, Buddhist nuns and monks, nomads and aristocrats, with the Dalai Lama as the temporal and spiritual leader. This book gives a complete and graphic account of how this tranquil, isolated kingdom, perched in the shadows of the Himalayas, was wrenched into the twentieth century and of how her courageous people have resisted their fate.
 
This is the first full account of the Dalai Lama and Tibet since the Chinese conquest in 1950. The author has attempted to tell Tibet's tale through the lives of those who have both defined and been governed by the major developments of recent history. Tibet's entry into the modern world has been unsought, painful and prolonged, but in many ways inspiring as well. Original two-tone gray hardcover, DJ, Fine.
