Tibetan cultural politics, nearby identities, and spiritual commitments can't be disentangled from imperial histories, modern geopolitics, and romanticized representations of Tibet. relocating deftly from armed fight to nonviolent starvation moves, and from diplomatic workplaces to refugee camps, Arrested Histories offers robust insights into the stakes of political engagement and the cultural contradictions of daily life.
