THL Title Text
Title: Tibet Through Chinese Eyes
Author/Creator: Peter Hessler

Description: Lengthy 3-part article about how Han Chinese people that live and work in Tibet understand their presence in this 'foreign' corner of their own country, especially in light of the large amount of international condemnation it has generated. The author concludes that the Han Chinese in Tibet are "agents of progress;" but at the same time there are elements of their effect on Tibetans and Tibet that may rightfully be called culturally imperialistic.
