Description
 
In this original work, an amalgam of scholarship, journalism, and travelogue, Asia analyst W. Kesler Jackson examines the Tibet crisis through a new lens as he seeks to unravel the various struggles for the Rooftop of the world. Traversing mountains and valleys from India, Nepal, and “Southwest China” to the United States, Jackson examines the risky bets being played for ultimate dominance in Tibet - and asks questions that are far too often ignored in discussions on the Tibet crisis today. After all, what is a Tibetan? What is Tibet? What will happen when the 14th Dalai Lama passes away? How does the current stereotype of an ultranonviolent Tibetan freedom movement really stack uo to reality? Are there Tibetan militants today? Could “giving Tibet back” actually benefit China? What are some possible solutions to the problem?

Written as both an introduction to the Tibet crisis as well as a refreshingly new perspective for the more well-read, The Tibet Gamble provides a unique look at an issue that must be dealt with soon-before it is too late.

The Tibet Gamble,  W. Kesler Jackson, Lulu, Paperback, 2007, 326 Pages, $21.25
