Tibet has been occupied for over fifty years, yet no progress has
been made in solving the Tibetan problem. The first serious
analysis of the Tibetan independence movement, this book is also
the first to view the struggle from a comparative perspective,
making an overt comparison with the Indian independence movement.
It rectifies the problem that the Tibetan independence movement is
not taken seriously from a political perspective. The book is
particularly concerned with the relationship between Buddhism and
Tibetan politics and resistance, comparing this with the
relationship between Hinduism and Gandhian political thought. It
also expands on the limited literature concerning violent
resistance in Tibet, examining guerilla warfare and the hunger
strike undertaken by the Tibetan Youth Congress in 1998, rejecting
the 'Shangri-la-ist' approach to Tibetan resistance.
