Recommended for readers interested in the history of the Tibet issue. In addition to the facts, Thondup also elaborates on the frustration he had in his role as a deal broker. Interestingly enough, the problems did not always come from the communist side. However, the genocide that the communist committed is undeniable.

We get ourselves in unnecessary trouble by doing things our way without regard for the other side. Eventually, the suspicion with which the Chinese view the world may destroy them. But we Tibetan may destroy ourselves, too. [...] We even have a proverb about this: Tibetans are ruined by hope, Chinese are ruined by suspicion.
