Titel: CIA's Secret War in Tibet
Sub titel:

Defiance against Chinese oppression has been a defining characteristic of Tibetan life since the 1950s, symbolized most visibly by the much revered Dalai Lama. But the story of Tibetan resistance weaves a far richer tapestry than may be imagined. This text looks at how America's Central Intelligence Agency encouraged Tibet's revolt against China - and eventually came to control its fledgling resistance movement. It provides an account of this little known agency enterprise. It takes readers from training camps in the Colorado Rockies to the scene of clandestine operations in the Himalayas, chronicling the agency's help in securing the Dalai Lama's safe passage to India and subsequent initiation of one of the most remote covert campaigns of the Cold War.
