  • The story of Tibet since its invasion by China in 1950 is largely unknown in the West. This book, based on interviews with hundreds of refugees and on a careful scrutiny of the official Chinese press, makes a major contribution towards closing that gap. After a background account of Tibet's history, Avedon reconstructs the Chinese conquest, the occupation, the guerrilla resistance, and the tribulations of the Tibetan refugee community now living in India. Despite all efforts, he concludes, the Chinese have failed to subdue the Tibetans, and they know it. Since 1978, the Chinese have been making overtures to the Dalai Lama to enter into negotiations for his possible return.
