The most difficult part of this review was the one-liner. How can I put into (simple) words the horrors that Tibet has been through, not in the last few years but over the last 50. If any book better illustrates the plight of a small nation against a despot like China more than this then I have not read it yet. It certainly puts into perspective the 'problems' that we may experience in our pampered lives. One question: Has the world forgotten Tibet and her invasion by China?
