The book provides an interesting perspective of how the Chinese view Tibet. The book Authenticating Tibet: Answers to China’s 100 Questions gives the Chinese answer to each question and then a more impartial answer to the question from an academic scholar. I would definitely recommend this book to other teachers or anyone interested in learning more about Tibet from a mostly unbiased viewpoint. Excerpts from the book would work well in upper level high school courses. It was extremely interesting. I enjoyed learning the Chinese perspective but even more I loved the expert critique of the ideas/topic in question. It provided historical context to many of the situations to give a clearer understanding.
