Other Titles

Abstract

Barbara Demick - author and journalist, formal Bureau Chief of the Los Angeles Time in Beijing and Seoul, previously reported from the Middle East and Balkans for the Philadelphia Inquirer, press fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations at Bagehot, fellow in Business Journalism at Columbia University ,and, a Visiting Professor of Journalism at Princeton - Under Xi Jinping, the Chinese Communist Party has exhibited zero tolerance for any slippage at the edges of the empire. The mass incarceration of the Muslim population of Xinjiang and the rollback of Hong Kong’s autonomy has grabbed the most attention. Tibet is experiencing the same erosion of its identity, even if the Party is proceeding more carefully. Barbara Demick looks at life in Ngaba (Aba in Chinese), a small Tibetan county, which became the engine of Tibetan resistance to Chinese rule with a wave of self-immolations that started in 2009. Ngaba is the subject of Demick’s newest book, Eat the Buddha, which was listed among the best non-fiction of 2020 by the New York Times, Washington Post, Financial Times, Economist, and NPR, among others.
