About This Book

Revised and extended edition of the 1990 book with fine photography which overviews the history of Tibet and traces the course of the traumatic events, violence and betrayals which led to the 1959 escape to India of the Dalai Lama and followers. Summary accounts are given of the Tibetans' reception in India where there are now 57 agricultural settlements. The four schools of Tibetan Buddhism are now represented by 600 centres throughout the world. Photographs present the situation in Tibet including the violent repressions of 1987 and 2008, and also the internationally welcomed educational role of the Dalai Lama.
