Why are Tibetans self-immolating? -- The protesters -- State-sponsored slander and media blockades -- Lhasa : apartheid redux -- Self-immolation as protest.
Tibet on Fire is her account of the oppression Tibetans face and the ideals driving those who resist, both the self-immolators and other Tibetans like herself. With a cover image designed by Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei, Tibet on Fire is angry and cogent: a clarion call for the world to take action.
Translated from the French translation of: Xizang huo feng huang.
