Description

This riveting tale is perfect for readers of sensitive love stories, history buffs, and those seeking a good yarn. Julian Nava is a retired professor of history, a writer of school texts, a global traveler and former U.S. ambassador whose novel weaves confidential political facts into this intriguing story of young love in a troubled Tibet the author came to know first-hand.
Every day life and customs in Tibet and Nepal are portrayed as three related love stories show the complexity of personal feelings in difficult circumstances that demand survival skills as China forces changes on an ancient Buddhist society.
In the novel an old Chinese professor tells how world powers, the United Nations, and the United States are deeply involved as life changes in Tibet when the Dalai Lama flees to India. Factual, and formerly highly secret, negotiations between President Nixon and Chairman Mao are woven into the story, as the author lets out data he learned as ambassador. The story is all the more timely with the recent tragic earthquakes in Nepal. Enjoy.

2 reviews for Taming The Chinesse Dragon, Young Love in Changing Tibet by Julian Nava

  1. Sorab K. Ghandi, CAP Professor Emeritus

    This historically accurate novel, set in the period when China occupied Tibet, is a veritable “tour de force.” As a world traveler and former U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, Nava has woven a tale reminiscent of Boris Pasternak’s “ Doctor Zhivago,” in its breadth, but without its length. It’s an enjoyable and informative read.” Sorab K. Ghandi, CAP Professor Emeritus

  2. Marjorie Rodgers

    “Amid intrigue in the Cold War power struggles, two young Tibetan lovers are caught up in the Chinese occupation and systematic destruction of feudal Tibet. As China brings Tibet into modern times, she must remain there while he flees to Nepal for fifteen years of separation. Each survives with other loves before they meet again. A compelling story of unselfish love and adaption in the world we face today.” Marjorie Rodgers
