Tibet's Last Stand?: The Tibetan Uprising of 2008 and China's Response
A lucid, comprehensive, and insightful account of the 2008 uprising in Tibet. Smith's impressive analysis of the causes of the uprising is surpassed only by his detailed examination of the consequences of that eruption: the resurgence of Tibetan nationalism, the brutal Chinese crackdown and the collapse of the Dalai Lama's negotiation attempts with Beijing. It is a must read for those concerned about the fate of Tibet. The book takes on special significance in the wake of the similar conflict in Xinjiang in 2009, providing useful insight into the future of China's colonial empire. -- Jamyang Norbu Tibet's Last Stand? is the first book-length discussion of the 150 or so protests that took place in Tibet in 2008. Using clear, accessible language, Warren Smith offers a detailed summary of the protests that took place and especially of the responses of the security forces and politicians to unrest, together with extensive ethical and political commentaries by the author. -- Robert J. Barnett The most informative and fair account available of China's occupation of Tibet and its consequences... Open-minded readers of whatever opinion about China and Tibet will find much to learn from Tibet's Last Stand, and may even change their minds... This is a revealing and honest book... Tibetans are unlikely ever to achieve their independence, Dr. Smith concludes, 'but they retain the right to write their own history.' This he says--and he is a great champion--must be the role of Tibetans in exile and their friends... I believe that will be the judgment of many attentive readers of this invaluable book. Hong Kong Economic Journal A useful, detailed account of the 2008 demonstrations, the official response, and surrounding events... Readers will gain a clear idea of the Chinese position on Tibet and of Beijing's strategy in the region: a combination of Han immigration, economic development, assimilation, repression, and waiting for the Dalai Lama to die. Foreign Affairs Recommended. Choice Warren W. Smith Jr. has emerged as the preeminent writer on Tibetan history and Sino-Tibetan relations. His newest work solidifies that position by offering the most comprehensive account available of Tibet's resistance during the buildup to the Beijing Olympics--an uprising that challenged China's claim that it has a legitimate right to colonize and suppress the Tibetan people. Smith relates Beijing's paranoid reaction to the uprising in fascinating detail. Anyone who is interested in the Tibetan issue or the nature of modern Chinese nationalism must read Tibet's Last Stand?, a seminal and mesmerizing book. -- Mikel Dunham An invaluable compendium of data on what Smith convincingly argues was a watershed moment not just for Sino-Tibetan relations, but also for China's relationship with the rest of the world... Smith provides readers with an admirably comprehensive review of the events, players, and discourses of the Tibetan unrest. Journal Of Asian Studies
