Since 1959, when China claimed power over this tiny mountain nation, more than one million Tibetans are believed to have perished by starvation, execution, imprisonment, and abortive uprisings. Many thousands more, including their spiritual and political leader, the 14th Dalai Lama, have been driven into exile. The country has been systematically colonized, so that indigenous inhabitants are now a second-class minority.

Review: Tears of Blood: A Cry For Tibet

User Review  - Lorraine Horn - Goodreads

A book everyone should should read. At times so horrifying I had to put it down as I was so upset. It gives you the real story behind the Chinese take over of Tibet and not the sanitised Chinese version. Read full review
