Wang Lixiong and Tsering Shakya debate Tibet's history under Communist rule. While both are critical of China's crackdown on resistance movements, Wang, a Chinese intellectual draws a picture of a struggle that is bureaucratic, religious and is opposed to Communism. Shakya, a Tibetan national historian, on the other hand, describes a struggle that is nationalistic and anti-colonial.
