Sifting facts from the distortions of propaganda and partisan politics, she reconstructs a chronology of events that answers lingering questions and tells a gripping story of a crisis whose aftershocks continue to rattle the region today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A wonderful combination of really good storytelling and meticulous, painstaking research. We are left with a much more thorough understanding of what must have happened in the weeks before and after the Dalai Lama's escape as well as a new certainty that there is much we will never know--or understand--for sure.--Anne F. Thurston, coauthor of The Noodle Maker of Kalimpong
Through her meticulous research and engaging narrative, Li is the first to convincingly reconstruct the events that forced the Dalai Lama to escape from Tibet. This pathbreaking book helps us understand why the violence of 1959 still resonates to this day.--Frank Dik tter, author of Mao's Great Famine
