Overview

Although there have been numerous publications that argue the merit of Chinese rule over Tibet, and many more that argue for Tibetan self-determination, the world has not heard many Chinese voices supporting the latter view. This book exposed the reader to just that perspective from no less famous writers and activists than Wei Jingsheng, Yan Jiaqi, Shen Tong, Wang Rouwang, and others. Though theirs is the view of a small minority of Chinese, history may still record the publication of these essays as a milestone in the history of this issue.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Translated, expanded, and revised for western readers from (Chinese Mainland Intellectuals on the Subject of Tibet) published by Shidai Chuban Press, Taipei, in 1996. The 13 contributors represent the small minority of Chinese who believe that Tibetans have been the victims of Chinese imperialism. Most are in exile, and the best (perhaps only) known to westerners is probably the vociferous Harry Wu. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
