  • I received this book for free in return for a review.I’ve always been interested in Tibet but knew very little about the country. I knew of course who the Dalai Lama was and that he was in exile, but that was mostly it.I’m now much more knowledgeable about Tibet. The book is written in a fresh, journalistic style, as befitting the author’s profession. She lived in China for ten years. For the book she interviewed various Tibetans/Chinese and got their viewpoints and stories, which are writ [...]


  • Cairns Magazine at cairnsmediaA glance at Dutch journalist Annelie Rozeboom's insightful book, Waiting For the Dalai Lama, Stories From All Sides in the Tibetan Debate (2011, Blacksmith Books, Hong Kong, 222 pages), should be enough to have many readers reaching for it.The truth about China's occupation and human-rights violations in Tibet, obscured by propaganda thicker than billowy clouds in the Himalayas, isn't easily found. By tackling this topic with supreme professionalism, the author does [...]


  • This is an interesting book and gives an idea of the situation in Tibet, both now and historically. While it claims to cover all sides of the debate, it mostly focuses on Tibetans (some pro-China and some anti-China). Stories are told by people who were around when the Chinese invaded and those too young to remember a Tibet without the Chinese occupiers. Overall this book has a more pro-Tibet/anti-China perspective, but really how can one defend what the Chinese have done to these proud, deeply [...]


  • “‘It’s better if the Dalai Lama doesn’t come back. Now he is working for Tibet’s independence, and he can only do this abroad. Here he would be put away in a monastery somewhere. It could even be dangerous…. I think that the situation in Tibet won’t change until China changes. As soon as they become more liberal and democratic, maybe we can find a solution. And until that time, all those who can stand to be in India should stay there, because their work is very important.’”The [...]


  • Excellent book that interviews as many sides as there could be, from CCP members to Tibetans in Tibet to Tibetans in India with different political beliefs. That about sums it up. The author is biased to the Tibetan side but hearing these stories it's hard not to be.


  • A book that has a simple and straightforward narration. It does get monotonous and slow, the narration even a little clumsy at places in the beginning, but when you get attuned to the author's style of writing, as with any other book, the book picks up speed. Much of the book are interviews the author had had with people who are in some way related either for or against the tibetan cause. For that very reason this becomes a comprehensive detailing of the present day scenario of Tibet, its people [...]
