Controlling the Margins

“The Chinese takeover of Tibet is the latest power play in the Himalayan region. Long ago, the Tibetans were the empire builders. In the 19th century, strongman Gulab Singh gobbled up parts of the Western Himalaya to create Jammu and Kashmir. During the Raj, the British commandeered the high mountains. The third tale is about politics and intrigue on an epic scale.”
