    One thought on “In Exile from the Land of Snows: The Definitive Account of the Dalai Lama and Tibet Since the Chinese Conquest”

    1. Read this because I wanted to get up to speed on the Dalai Lama before his week-long tour of New Mexico, which I was assigned to cover in March 1991. Fascinating primer on all of it, especially the Tibetan exile. Brought all those "Free Tibet" bumperstickers into sharp relief.

    2. Simply terrific. A very comprehensive study of the history of Tibet from the 1930's to 1979, whic special emphasis on the building of the exile community in India and the experiences of several important people who escaped both before and after the Cultural Revolution. A lot of information here that's simply not in other books. Be warned: Reading about Tibet after 1959 is akin to reading a WWII Holocaust book.

    3. An extremely well written and researched book on modern Tibetan History that I would suggest to anyone interested in Tibet. Avedon mixes first hand accounts with the larger historical context in a way that is both compelling and informative. Essential read for young Tibetans and those who are/want to be Tibet supporters!

    4. China since Deng Xiaoping has been a fast growing and somewhat prosperous authoritarian state. Before Deng under Mao it was a chamber of horrors as bad as any in the 20th century (great leap forward, anti-rightist rectification campaign, Cultural revolution). This history can be found in any relatively unbiased source. Tibet was an independent country which had little introduction with modernity until 1959 when China "liberated" it. The first half of the book covers the exile of the Dalai Lama i [...]

    5. My mother highly recommended this book, and I did want to know more about Tibet in light of the Olympics and all. However, I could not get into this book. It was far to detailed for me, practically telling the history of Tibet on a day-to-day basis. I need a much bigger picture.Aside from being too detailed for me, the writing was lovely and the story was compassionately told. I think if I had been able to sit down to read for larger blocks of time I would have enjoyed it more. Perhaps I'll try [...]

    6. i finished this book last night before i went to bed and i dreamt about it it was so haunting. photos of monasteries before and after the chinese invasion are incredibly depressing and i feel a chill from all the horrors that occurred during high maoist years. to tibetans and chinese alike. i don't know how likely free tibet is but i developed a deep impression of the compassion, kindness, and wisdom of the tibetan people.

    7. This book had too much detail for me and I bogged down like I was post-holing through the snows of the Himalyas. Even so, I was impressed by how hard the Dalai Lama worked to make a deal with the Chinese before he fled into exile. And also how forsightful he was in attempting to create a sort of cultural web that would sustain Tibetan culture even as refugees settled around the world.

    8. This telling of Tibet's sorrows starts with the story of the Fourteenth Dahlai Lama and unveils the awful story of the collision with China in the last fifty years.My paperback from 1986 had small print, which only affected the usefulness of the maps on four key pages in front of the book.I recommend this to all interested in Tibet.

    9. Not an easy read by any means, but certainly a "definitive" and thorough account. Outstanding detail. I especially enjoyed the chapter on Tibetan medicine.

    10. comprehensive and accessible story of the Dalai Lama's escape from Tibet--also provides a great overview of Tibetan Buddhist History
