Publisher's Summary

The murder of a young Tibetan nun at the hands of Chinese border guards at the rooftop of the world offers a unique parable for the tale of modern Tibet.

Chinese police are instructed to take any measures necessary to protect the border of Tibet. When a group of climbers witness the murder of a young Tibetan nun who is fleeing to India, two men have a choice: turn a blind eye and preserve their climbing careers or alert the world to the grand scale of human injustice played out daily in Tibet.

Intrepid journalist Jonathan Green here investigates the clash of cultures at the rooftop of the world. As he gains entrance to a fascinating network of Tibetan guides and safe houses operating in the name of freedom, investigates the tradition of extreme mountaineering in Chinese-occupied Tibet, and establishes contact with surviving refugees, he offers a rare, affecting portrait of modern Tibet and raises enduring questions about morality and the lengths to which we go to achieve freedom.

    "Wonderful Book About Chinese Occupation of Tibet"

    The best book I've read about the Chinese occupation of Tibet. Wonderful wonderful book that tell us a lot about the Chinese government few realize. My only fault with the book was that it ran a bit to long the last portion of the book. Highly recommended. Terrific reader.

    Story
    "the secret side of a super power"

    I've been to the Tibetan Autonomous Region of China and seen the face of 'development'. Yes, I experienced a sense of unease between the new population and the indigenous people, yes I saw a heavy military presence but I didn't fully appreciate the true story until I heard this audio book. This a gripping and tragic tale about the face of progress in an amazing part of the world. We'll worth a listen as it depicts how little some aspects of human nature have changed since the times of ghenghis khan.
