This article reviews Catriona Bass's book "Education in Tibet, Policy and Practice Since 1950." While the political and religious tensions between Tibet and the central Chinese government are familiar to many, this book provides a rare English language examination of the educational system in the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR), and how such education reflects the relationship between Tibet and the central Chinese government. In the words of the author, this book "is the first full-length account of education in the TAR published outside China."
