The Chinese Communists invaded Tibet - a country the size of Western Europe - in 1950, in order, they said, to "liberate" it. They claimed that Tibet was an integral part of China and, although the claim was untrue, the rest of the world showed little concern. It is claimed that, within 20 years, over a million Tibetans had been killed by execution, torture, long imprisonment, starvation or sickness, not to mention the countless suicides. Tibetan treasures and natural resources were pillaged and the Buddhist religion was banned. Only 12 monasteries were left of the original 24,000. In recent years a systematic Sinocization of the country has taken place, the natives have been reduced to a slave-like status, and brutality and China's "final solution" continue. Based on research and interviews with many exiled Tibetans, and containing first-hand accounts by survivors of Chinese brutality, this book tells the story of modern Tibet. The author's previous publications include biographies of Pope John Paul II and Lord Longford.
