Bruno helps us understand the hopes and aspirations of this people, and as well as what could be lost if China has its way.
--Bob on Books
Blessings from Beijing will inform readers who know little about Tibet, and those who know a great deal will discover more. Both groups will be surprised.
Blessings from Beijing is essential reading for its digging deep into the strengths and weaknesses of the exile Tibetans.
A highly informative journalistic work. . . . The book . . . provides a valuable, up-close perspective from the viewpoint of Tibetan exiles to reveal the extent of China’s ambitious and ruthless determination to hold its unitary state together and the heavy tolls this determination exacts on those deemed in opposition. . . . Highly recommended.
Amazing. Very well written and really fascinating. A tragic and extremely important topic, for what it says not just about Tibet, but also about how China uses its power.
--Christopher R. Hughes, professor of international relations, London School of Economics and Political Science, and author of Chinese Nationalism in the Global Era
