The noodle maker of Kalimpong : the untold story of my struggle for Tibet by Rgya-lo-don-grub( Sound Recording )
7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 44 libraries worldwide
In December 2010 residents of Kalimpong, a town on the Indian border with Tibet, turned out en masse to welcome the Dalai Lama. It was only then they realized for the first time that the neighbor they knew as the noodle maker of Kalimpong was also the Dalai Lama's older brother. Gyalo Thondup has long lived out of the spotlight, but his whole life has been dedicated to the cause of his younger brother and Tibet. He served for decades as the Dalai Lama's special envoy, the trusted interlocutor between Tibet and foreign leaders from Chiang Kai-shek to Jawaharlal Nehru, Zhou Enlai to Deng Xiaoping. Traveling the globe and meeting behind closed doors, Thondup has been an important witness to some of the epochal events of the twentieth century. In fact, only the Dalai Lama himself has played a more important role in the political history of modern, tragedyridden Tibet. Now, with Anne F. Thurston, Gyalo Thondup is finally telling his story

Muddling toward democracy : political change in grassroots China by Anne F Thurston( file )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Among the most significant political reforms implemented by the Chinese government since 1989 is the introduction of competitive elections into rural villages. This study, based largely on fieldwork conducted between 1995 and 1997, examines China's efforts to bring competitive elections to the country's rural areas and attempts to explain why local democracy has proved more successful in some places than in others. By focusing on the realities and complexities of rural China, the study also attempts to reintroduce China-as-China into public dialogue
