Authored by the chief Tibetan negotiator during the 10-year period of formal dialogue between the Chinese and the Tibetan government in exile, as well as the 25-year period of quiet diplomacy preceding these historic negotiaions, this book catalogues the fits and starts of the parties' relationship, addressing the successes and failures of the campaign, highlighting the missteps, missed opportunities, and misperceptions of both parties. Informed by this experience, the author offers recommendations to restart the dialogue, recognizing the need to resolve the matter during the limited window of opportunity available prior to the passing of the current Dalai Lama.
