This chapter tells the stories of some of the people who traveled between the People's Republic of China and India, and of the officials who had to decide on how to deal with them. More specifically, it examines the collaboration between Guomindang spies and Tibetans in Nepal, the emergence of trade in the Himalayas, the rioting by Tibetan Muslims in Lhasa, and nomads' crossing across disputed boundaries in search of pasture. The rest of this chapter considers China's response to India's refusal to compromise on the border dispute, its perceived assistance to the Tibetans, and its attempts to exploit ethnic tension within Tibet. It also discusses the famine that ensued in the Tibetan plateau when the PRC terminated the cross-border trade.
