About Book:

Tibet exerts a powerful fascination far beyond its borders; remoteness and the deeply pervasive character ot Tibetan Buddhism have provided the setting for countless works of romace adventure and fantasy. Resistance and Reform in Tibet reveals the emergence of a distinctive, modern Tibetan society and the sophistication, creativity and resourcefulness of its people's responses to Chinese domination. Tibet today is neither a socialist idyll nor a regimented gulag but a rich mixture of traditonal and innovative strategies in an ancient nation's struggle for survival.
