Foreign correspondent Tim Johnson discusses his new book Tragedy in Crimson: How the Dalai Lama Conquered the World but Lost the Battle with China (Avalon, $26.99). Tragedy in Crimson is an extraordinary account of the cat-and-mouse game embroiling China and the Tibetan exile community over Tibet. Johnson reports from the front lines, trekking to nomad resettlements to speak with the people who guard Tibet's slowly vanishing culture. He recounts his travels alongside the Dalai Lama in the campaigns for Tibetan sovereignty, and how China is using its economic power around the globe to assail the Free Tibet movement. Above all, Tragedy in Crimson tells the story of a people on the brink of cultural extinction and the rising nation that is quashing them. Award-winning journalist Tim Johnson has spent the last twenty years as a foreign correspondent for the Miami Herald and the McClatchy Company. He was Beijing bureau chief for McClatchy Newspapers for six years and is now based in Mexico City. (herebebooks)
