New book offers a rare look inside Tibet

The book 'Voices from Tibet', offers new insight into Tibetan aspirations for autonomy. The book is written by authors Tsering Woeser and Wang Lixiong, and represents a rare Chinese view that is sympathetic to Tibetan causes. Woeser was awarded the International Women of Courage award by the U.S; Department of State in 2013 and Wang Lixiong has been honored with a Freedom of Expression Award for his work on the Tibetan issue. We’ll talk with the book’s translator, Violet Law.
