About the Book :

This book is singular in its approach about the strategic application of truth and nonviolence as tools for the conflict resolution adopted by the Dalai Lama since 1950. There is historical interpretation of value-based action. The compulsions and constraints of the Dalai Lama are explored. The tangible and intangible results are assessed. The authors generate penetrating insights about the future of Tibet. Tibet is viewed as a glorious example of Survival of even the Weakest. Following the award of Nobel Peace Prize, the diplomatic stance of the Dalai Lama is critically narrated. Unpublished correspondence with the world statesmen is cited.
