Product description


"Thomas Laird examines a little-known incident in the Cold War and thereby throws a brilliant light upon the character of America's intelligence and foreign-policy organizations of the time....A fascinating, groundbreaking work on a controversial subject about which new readers will be familiar. Packed with vital new information and insights, Into Tibet fills a blank space in the hidden history of the Cold War."

"Into Tibet brings alive...an event the CIA Would still, more than fifty years later, like to keep quiet."

"Focusing on the heart-stopping details of the expedition itself, Laird gives the now familiar story of callous CIA manipulation an absorbing twist."

"Laird does an exemplary job of investigating, reporting, and shaping the events and personalities that compose the tragic story."
