Worlds Shattered, Worlds Reforged

(p.116) Epilogue
Muslim, Trader, Nomad, Spy

Sulmaan Wasif Khan

This epilogue discusses the reforms implemented by the People's Republic of China with respect to Tibet after the crisis sparked by the Dalai Lama's exile to India. With the Dalai Lama gone, the PRC saw little reason to continue delaying reform in political Tibet; indeed, it saw reform as one of the keys to pacifying the insurgency. From mobilizing the masses and pacifying the rebellion, to defeating the invading Indian forces, introducing land reform, and launching people's communes in Tibet, such changes not only transformed life in the Tibetan borderlands but also caused China to redefine its foreign policy toward the third world.

Keywords:   reforms, People's Republic of China, Tibet, Dalai Lama, insurgency, India, land reform, people's communes, foreign policy, third world
