Authenticating TibetThe Authenticating TIBET, Answers to China's 100 Questions has edited by Anne-Marie Blondeau and Kathia Buffetrille and published by University Of California Press in 2008.
"True or false: Tibet has always been a part of China. True or false: Prior to 1959, the majority of the Tibetan population were serfts living under feudal lords. True or false: Between 1959 and 1979 more than one million Tibetans were killed by the Chinese..." Donald Lopez wrote in his introduction to this title.
The land of Tibet has long been both a source of fascination & an object of contention. Since 1959 Tibet has been at the center controversy.
In 1989 the Chinese government published a booklet, 100 Questions about Tibet, that sought to counter the criticism generated by the Dalai Lama & his followers & to offer the PRC's "truth" about Tibet... This remarkable title is a respond to this booklet. In this very important book international Tibet scholars offer unbiased and clear answers to the 100 questions.
Anne-Marie is Honorary professor of Tibetan Studies. Katia Buffetrille is a Research Fellow, both at Ecole Practique des Hautes Etudes in Paris. Donald Lopez is Arthur E. Link Distinguished Professor of Buddhist & Tibetan Studies in the University of Michigan.
