A Year in Tibet by Sun Shuyun



To the Rikzin family. Chapter One - The Shaman, The Gun and Mao's Red Book. Chapter Two - Sky Burial. Chapter Three - Journey to the Next Life. Tibet has always called to me. In 1986, my last year at Beijing University, I had the chance to volunteer to work in Tibet. For eight years' service I would get Party membership, double pay, housing priority and faster promotion on my return. It seemed like a good deal. I was only twenty-three; I knew it would be tough but I would be set up for life by the time I was thirty. And I had seen a lot of photographs of Xizang, the Chinese name for Tibet, which means ‘Western Treasure’.

A Year in Tibet book. So this book is quite unique. When Sun discussed the Cultural Revolution with Tibetans she could offer her perception of what she experienced in China. My grandma, like most Chinese of her generation, was a Buddhist. Her sole consolation was t A perceptive perspective on Tibet, the author is a Chinese woman who was raised in China but later studied in Britain. She was in a remote part of Tibet making a film for the BBC for 18 months. We are used to reading about Tibet from a Western perspective.

Sun Shuyun, who studied Tibetan at Oxford, uses it to chart a much more personal and sometimes painful journey. A Year in Tibet is a fascinating study of a little-known land. What does come through ringing clear is the Tibetan people's remarkable serenity even in the midst of terrible hardships.

A Year in Tibet: A Voyage of Discovery. HarperCollins £20, pp222. The television series that this book accompanies has caused a fair amount of controversy in print and online. On a number of blogs, pro-Tibetan independence campaigners and pro-Chinese writers have used the five-part documentary as a starting point for arguments around the big questions of Tibetan autonomy and Chinese oppression. Those on the side of the Tibetans accuse the programme makers and the BBC of failing to address the subjugation of Tibetans by China.
