In this dialogue the poignant and provocative story of Tibet since the Chinese Communist invasion unfolds. Exemplifying the nonviolent approach to conflict resolution, the Tibetan people, personified by the Dalai Lama himself, have demonstrated resilience and restraint in the face of an unparalleled devastation of their country. Avedon reveals facts never before made known about the State Oracle of Tibet, the destruction of more than six thousand monasteries and temples, the imprisonment of ten million people in Chinese gulags and the incredibly inspiring story of the Tibetan exiles themselves, who have against all odds been able to preserve their cultural heritage and establish their viability as a people.


John Avedon (1923-2004) is the author of In Exile from the Land of Snows (Knopf 1984)
