Tibet, Tibet - A Personal History of a Lost Land by Patrick French, 333 pages (Hardcover)

Tibet Tibet has its origins in Patrick French's twenty year involvement in the Tibetan cause. Part memoir, part travel book, part history, it is a quest for the true as opposed to the mythical Tibet.

Rather then the peace loving nation of popular Western conception, he finds a land with a long, war-like past and a complex interlocking relationship with China.

Above all he looks at how Tibet's recent history has affected the lives of individuals. He meets victims and perpetrators of Mao's Cultural Revolution, and young nuns who continue the fight against Communist rule. He stays in the tents of nomads, and hears first hand accounts of the hopeless battle against overwhelmingly superior Chinese forces which ended, in a single day, a way of life that had endured for thousands of years.

Patrick French has found a new way of writing about a place and its history. He fascinatingly illuminates one of the most persistently troubling international issues, and confirms his reputation as one of the finest writers at work today.
