Since the late 1950s, the rugged resolve of the Dalai Lama and his people and the growing respect for their efforts to free their homeland from Chinese occupation have made Tibet's political and cultural status a pressing issue in international affairs. So has the realization by nations, including the United States, that their geopolitical interests would best be served by the defeat of the Chinese and the achievement of Tibetan self-determination. Beyond Shangri-La provides unique insight into the efforts of the U.S. government and committed U.S. citizens to support a free Tibet.
The book is published by Duke University Press.

Dense, Compelling, a little too Fast!
This is the first audiobook I've ever bought that was read too fast! I usually listen at 1.5 speed, but even tried going down to .75 speed for this one (too much distortion though).
Wonderful piece of unbiased history. I came away wishing the Tibetans had a sovereign homeland but deep enough in the nuance of real-politik not to just think China bad, Dalai Lama good.
Hard to keep up with all the names of diplomats, leaders, conferences, etc. but well worth the effort to gain this prism into that whole story which I had little knowledge of.
