This near pristine volume shows only a small crease inside the the back flap of the dust jacket. "The problem of Tibet is very complicated. It is intrinsically linked with many issues: politics, the nature of society, law, human rights, religion, culture, the identity of a people, the economy and the state of the natural environment. Consequently, a comprehensive approach must be adopted to resolve this problem that takes into account the benefits to all parties involved, rather than one party alone." Author Robert Thurman details five steps that will resolve the many issues and establish an example to the global community to build a better world. First edition, signed by the author "to Sobina."
