ISBN10: 0742566854

Summary: This deeply knowledgeable book offers the first sustained analysis of the 2008 uprising in Tibet, which not only revealed much about Tibetan nationalism but even more about Chinese nationalism. Retracing the complex history between China and Tibet, noted expert Warren Smith describes the uprising itself and explores its broader significance for Chinese-Tibetan relations. He sharply critiques China's use of heavy-handed propaganda to recast the uprising and further repress and isolate
the Tibetan people. The book convincingly shows that far from becoming more lenient in response to Tibetan discontent, China has determined to eradicate Tibetan opposition internally and coerce the international community to conform to China's version of Tibetan history and reality.
