China’s best bet for win­ning global respect is the Dalai Lama him­self, says Columbia University Tibet scholar Professor Robert Thurman (a mem­ber of The Tibet Connection’s advi­sory board), who is also pres­i­dent of Tibet House US. Thurman shares the spir­i­tual leader’s opti­mistic take and rec­om­men­da­tions for the immi­nent res­o­lu­tion of the Sino-​​Tibetan ques­tion in his book Why the Dalai Lama Matters: His Act of Truth as the Solution for China, Tibet and the World.
