"This book is neither pro Chinese nor pro Tibetan in the current senses of these terms. The book attempts to explaicare a dramatic historical event the denuise in 1951 of the de facto independent Lamaist State. It examines what happens and why and it balances the traditional focus on international relations with an emphasis on the intricate web of internal affairs and events. The book is divided in two parts. Part one contains the period following the 13th Dalai Lama’s death in 1933, when Tibet threw off the Manchu hegemony and attained de facto independent status. Part two deals with the Taktra Regency of 1941 1950 and the last year of the Lamaist State under the 14th Dalai Lama. "
