In Exile from the Land of Snows  

Public awareness of the plight of Tibet is expanding with the release of two new films--SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET, starring Brad Pitt and KUNDAN, directed by Martin Scorsese. For viewers who want the full story, this book tells the saga of a people struggling to maintain their identity as they wage a nonviolent struggle against the Chinese government. Now updated with a conversation with the Dalai Lama himself


Recensione in lingua italiana

E' il testo classico sulla occupazione cinese e sulla ribellione del 1959. Avedon illustra anche i problemi e la fine della resistenza con basi in Dolpo e Mustang.
