Spoiling Tibet : China and Resource Nationalism on the Roof of the World, Hardback Book

Spoiling Tibet : China and Resource Nationalism on the Roof of the World Hardback

Part of the Asian Arguments series

Description

The mineral-rich mountains of Tibet so far have been largely untouched by China's growing economy.

Nor has Beijing been able to settle Tibet with politically reliable peasant Chinese.

That is all about to change as China's 12th Five-Year Plan, from 2011 to 2015, calls for massive investment in copper, gold, silver, chromium and lithium mining in the region, with devastating environmental and social outcomes. Despite great interest in Tibet worldwide, Spoiling Tibet is the first book that investigates mining at the roof of the world.

A unique, authoritative guide through the torrent of online posts, official propaganda and exile speculation.
