"Nearly everyone knows the dramatic story of the Dalai Lama, who in 1959 was forced to flee Tibet and the people whom he ruled. Not as many know the stirring and terrible events behind that escape--events which culminated in a spontaneous uprising of the Tibetan people in the capital city of Lhasa. This book, based on interviews with many of the participants (including the Dalai Lama himself), and containing a wealth of unpublished material, carefully reconstructs both the revolt and the Dalai Lama's journey."--Book jacket.
