In recent years, there has been considerable interest among the scholars, human right activists, strategic thinkers and the wider public about Tibet. The present volume focuses on different aspects of the Tibetan problem. Some noted experts and professionals with long experience have contributed to this work. The articles cover a wide range of issues providing comprehensive perspectives as also an analysis of contemporary developments.
The book reflects the views of an institution, and individuals, who are deeply concerned about Tibet. This concern ranges from the past, especially the recent tragic past, to the future. As to the past, there is a sense of concern that India and, before 1947, British India did not play fair by that unfortunate country. More specifically, the contributions reflect the anguish felt by a growing number of people around the world that the history of Tibet is not adequately known, and hence the tragedy continues – away from the glare of publicity.
