About the Book

Tibet, Disrupted is a photo-based book that blows the lid off China’s megadam construction and large-scale mining in Tibet, and documents the looming crisis for the entire Asian region. Through a mixture of on-the-ground photography and painstaking research, Michael Buckley turns the spotlight on the darker side of China’s emergence as a global superpower. The enhanced ebook, published on the Apple iBooks platform, features photographs sourced from dozens of photographers, as well as cellphone pictures smuggled out of Tibet at great risk. This ebook is intended to be a visual companion to the author’s print book, Meltdown in Tibet.

—Alex Shoumatoff, author of The World is Burning

“The photo-rich eBook is a knockout on my big HD Apple computer screen. Buckley encourages geography professors to screen the book for discussion, and gives lecturers permission to do just that in the book.”

—Pat Morrow, author of Beyond Everest

“Powerful and inspirational: This is a precarious situation perched on a precipice, and Buckley has managed to articulate it with strength, dignity and profundity. This is a courageous endeavour. I hope the book does very well, and more pertinently, has an impact on the world’s collective consciousness.”

—Siddharth Dasgupta, author of Letters from an Indian Summer
