This autobiography of His Holiness the Dalai Lama is extremely inspiring. You can't get a closer historical account of the Tibet / China conflict than this.
It is a very well-written history of events and also the present struggles of the Tibetan people. The Dalai Lama has an uncanny sense of compassion and it is easy to see from this book why he was awarded the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize. I very much enjoyed reading the book and highly recommend it. Anybody interested in Asian history, world politics, Buddhism, or human rights issues will enjoy this first hand account of the invasion of Tibet by the Chinese government.
