Tragedy in Crimsonis award-winning journalist Tim Johnson's extraordinary account of the cat-and-mouse game embroiling China and the Tibetan exile community over Tibet. Johnson reports from the front lines, trekking to nomad resettlements to speak with the people who guard Tibet's slowly vanishing culture; and he travels alongside the Dalai Lama in the campaigns for Tibetan sovereignty. Johnson unpacks how China is using its economic power around the globe to assail the Free Tibet movement. By encouraging massive Chinese migration and restricting Tibetan civil rights, the Chinese are also working to dilute Tibetan culture within the country itself. He also takes a sympathetic but unsentimental look at the Dalai Llama, a trendy figure in the West who is regarded as a failure to his own people. Staggering in scope, vivid and audacious in its narrative,Tragedy in Crimsontells the story of the country at the precipice of the world, teetering on the brink of cultural annihilation.
