Summary
Since the 2008 uprising, nearly 150 Tibetan monks have set fire to themselves in protest at the Chinese occupation of their country. Most have died from their injuries. Author Tsering Woeser is a prominent voice of the Tibetan movement, and one of the few Tibetan authors to write in Chinese. Her stirring acts of resistance have led to her house arrest, where she remains under close surveillance to this day. 'Tibet On Fire' is her account of the oppression Tibetans face and the ideals driving those who resist, both the self-immolators and other Tibetans like herself
