Sinossi

Born in 1941, Tubten Khétsun is a nephew of the Gyatso Tashi Khendrung, one of the senior government officials taken prisoner after the Tibetan peoples' uprising of March 10, 1959. Khétsun himself was arrested while defending the Dalai Lama's summer palace, and after four years in prisons and labor camps, he spent close to two decades in Lhasa as a requisitioned laborer and "class enemy."

In this eloquent autobiography, Khétsun describes what life was like during those troubled years. His account is one of the most dispassionate, detailed, and readable firsthand descriptions yet published of Tibet under the Communist occupation. Khétsun talks of his prison experiences as well as the state of civil society following his release, and he offers keenly observed accounts of well-known events, such as the launch of the Cultural Revolution, as well as lesser-known aspects of everyday life in occupied Lhasa.

Since Communist China continues to occupy Tibet, the facts of this era remain obscure, and few of those who lived through it have recorded their experiences at length. Khétsun's story will captivate any reader seeking a refreshingly human account of what occurred during the Maoists' shockingly brutal regime.

5.0 su 5 stelle An Excellent Account of the Real Story of Modern Tibet 3 marzo 2008
Di Wilson C. Hurley - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina rigida
Tubten Khetsun provides a remarkably detailed and vivid account of what Tibetans have undergone during and following the brutal take over of their land by China during the period between 1959-1979. He takes you in with him during his struggle to survive in what has been the darkest period of Tibet's history and leaves you amazed and grateful in his personal victory and emancipation while simulataneously feeling open-hearted for the terrible suffering that the Tibetans have undergone. This is not only of interest from a hisorical perspective, but more importantly, from a humanitarian perspective...it's a must read!

5.0 su 5 stelle A breathtaking memoir 10 agosto 2011
Di Jakub Smutny - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina rigida
This is an excellent journey into the beginning of cultural genocide started by the Chinese in Tibet in late 1950s. It gives an incredibly vivid picture of the degree of suffering Tibetan people had to go through during the height of the atrocious Cultural Revolution.

An indispensable read for anyone who wishes to understand the circumstances under which China annexed the Himalayan nation. The extent to which the Chinese managed to implement their radical communist ideals is also indicative of the bloody foundations modern Chinese state is based upon.
