Product description

Tibet Fights For Freedom

The Story of the March 1959 Uprising as Recorded in Documents, Despatches, Eye-Witness Accounts and World-wide Reactions

A White Book

Raja Hutheesing, ed

With a Foreword by the Dalai Lama

Published for The Indian Committee for Cultural Freedom by

Orient Longmans Private Ltd, Bombay, etc. First published 1960.

Soft-bound; 180 x 245 mm; 243 pages. Illustrations within text. Original unclipped dust jacket.

The book is in fair condition. The binding is sound. The dust jacket is grubby with creases and open and closed tears. Page end tanning and some tanning internally. Half title stamped (twice) with “THE TIBET SOCIETY OF THE UNITED KINGDOM” and a small red mark.

The 1959 Tibetan uprising or the 1959 Tibetan rebellion began on 10 March 1959, when a revolt erupted in Lhasa, the capital of the Tibet Area, which had been under the effective control of the People's Republic of China since the Seventeen Point Agreement was reached in 1951. Armed conflict between Tibetan guerillas and the People's Liberation Army had started in 1956 in the Kham and Amdo regions, which had been subjected to socialist reform. The guerrilla warfare later spread to other areas of Tibet and lasted through 1962.

“Apart from the Prime Minister’s statements to the Indian Parliament, this White Book reproduces despatches of many experienced foreign correspondents who clustered on the Indo-Tibetan border hungry for news. Also included are comments that appeared from time to time in the British, American, French, Italian and Indian Press.” Background material is included and the story of the Dalai Lama’s escape.

The book contains a wealth of contemporary material in one place, and may appeal to those studying and researching in this field.
