Return to Tibet : Tibet After the Chinese Occupation, Paperback

Return to Tibet : Tibet After the Chinese Occupation Paperback



Heinrich Harrer returns to Tibet - thirty years after the visit described in his bestselling SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET. SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET told of an idyllic life on the 'rooftop of the world', before Harrer was forced to flee from the invading Chinese armies. Thirty years later, he returns to describe how the Chinese have attempted to destroy this ancient civilisation.

Meeting old Tibetan acquaintances, including the Dalai Lama now living in exile in northern India, Harrer examines the current thaw in Peking's relations with this isolated and mysterious country. In its vivid evocation of Tibet, past and present, Return to Tibet provides a fascinating insight into the durability of this profoundly spiritual culture.
