Tim Johnson - Tragedy in Crimson - Gables
Tragedy in Crimson (Nation Books, $26.95) is award-winning journalist Tim Johnson's extraordinary account of the cat-and-mouse game embroiling China and the Tibetan exile community over Tibet. A foreign correspondent for The Miami Herald and McClatchy Newspapers bureau chief in Beijing for six years, Johnson reports from the front lines, trekking to nomad resettlements to speak with the people who guard Tibet's slowly vanishing culture. He travels alongside the Dalai Lama in the campaigns for Tibetan sovereignty. Johnson unpacks how China is using its economic power around the globe to assail the Free Tibet movement. Staggering in scope, vivid and audacious in its narrative aims, Tragedy in Crimson tells the story of a people on the brink of cultural extinction and the rising nation that is quashing them. 8pm
