Voices from Tibet assembles reportage by Tsering Woeser and Wang Lixiong, regarded as the most insightful writers on contemporary Tibet. With the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) in a virtual lockdown after the 2008 unrest, this book sheds light on the simmering frustrations that touched off the unrest and Beijing’s relentless control tactics in its wake. This talk will feature selected readings, and discuss the making of the book and the facts on the ground.
