Their citizen military fought via 1974 with covert aid from the Tibetan exile executive and the governments of India, Nepal, and the us. many years later, the tale of this resistance is barely commencing to learn and has now not but entered the annals of Tibetan nationwide heritage. In Arrested Histories, the anthropologist and historian Carole McGranahan exhibits how and why histories of this resistance military are “arrested” and explains the consequent repercussions for the Tibetan refugee community.

Drawing on wealthy ethnographic and old study, McGranahan tells the tale of the Tibetan resistance and the social approaches wherein this background is made and unmade, and lived and forgotten within the current. achievement of veterans’ wish for acceptance hinges at the Dalai Lama and “historical arrest,” a convention during which the telling of yes pasts is suspended till an undetermined time sooner or later. during this research, struggles over historical past grow to be a profound ache of belonging. Tibetan cultural politics, local identities, and non secular commitments can't be disentangled from imperial histories, modern geopolitics, and romanticized representations of Tibet. relocating deftly from armed fight to nonviolent starvation moves, and from diplomatic workplaces to refugee camps, Arrested Histories offers strong insights into the stakes of political engagement and the cultural contradictions of daily life.
