From Our Editors

Told with startling detail, Orphans of the Cold War: America and the Tibetan Struggle for Survival is a vivid portrait of America’s military aid to Tibet, since its invasion by China in 1950. Author John Knaus is a 44-year veteran of the CIA and played a key role in the organization and training of select Tibetan resistance fighters. Providing his unique insight through keenly drawn portraits and historical analysis, this gripping tale illuminates America’s little known involvement in some of the most daring operations, set up against ultimately impossible odds. Anyone concerned with the fate of the Dalai Lama and his nation will find this book to be an invaluable, moving account of Tibet’s tragic history and secret wars.
