“When Serfs Stood Up in Tibet” by Anna Louise Strong, first published in 1959, tells the dramatic story of Tibetan serfdom’s overthrow. Traveling in an unpressurized plane to the high altitude Himalayas to Lhasa, Strong recounts her eye-opening experiences with a sharp journalistic eye, documenting the struggles and aspirations of Tibetan serfs who, after centuries of servitude and torture, dared to challenge their fate. This gripping narrative provides an unflinching historical account of the horrors of serfdom and the events that transpired during the years which Tibet was liberated, events that have since been rewritten by different parties vying for control of the once autonomous region.
