Some western scholars reject claims of "serfdom in Tibet" outright based on the view that "Tibet" cannot be defined as one political entity or social system ; its political and socioeconomic structures have varied greatly over time and between sub-districts.
The various polities comprising Tibet have changed significantly over the past 2, years, and even during the modern period there have been dramatic changes in what Tibet is, as anthropologist Geoff Childs writes: According to Luciano Petech"K'ams [the Kham region, largely synonymous with the province of XIkang which was abolished in ] was practically independent of Lhasa under its great lamas" in the 18th century CE.
Meanwhile, the western part of Xikang i. Qamdo and Qinghai was only occupied by Lhasa in the Tibet-Kham War which lasted from the s to s. The Tibetan government in exile claims that other ethnically Tibetan areas to the east and to the north also belong to Tibet, i.
Discussing the social structure of Tibet inevitably leads to difficulties with defining terms. Not only may serf and feudalism be Western terms inappropriate for Asian use but the geography and peoples of Tibet vary according to interpreter.
The lack of agreement of the various sides as to terminology highlights that the "serfdom in Tibet" controversy is a politicised debate, with the term "feudal serfdom" largely being used by the People's Republic of China as a justification for their taking control of Tibet.
According to the PRC: The founding of the People's Republic of China in brought hope for the deeply distressed Tibetan people. In conforming to the law of historical development and the interests of the Tibetan people, the Central People's Government worked actively to bring about Tibet's peaceful liberation.
After that, important policies and measures were adopted for Tibet's Democratic Reform, regional autonomy, large-scale modernization and reform and opening-up. First of all, international law does not accept justifications of this type. No country is allowed to invade, occupy, annex and colonize another country just because its social structure does not please it.
Secondly, the PRC is responsible for bringing more suffering in the name of liberation. Thirdly, necessary reforms were initiated and Tibetans are quite capable of doing so.
Sources on the history of Tibet are available from both pro-Chinese and pro-Tibetan writers. Pro-Chinese materials may be published by mainstream Western printers, or within the People's Republic of China.
Tibetan materials, similarly, may be published by mainstream Western printers, or by the Tibetan Government in Exile. Both sides hope to persuade foreign readers to support their own point of view through these publications. Translators are not named, but censors are. Several Chinese sources insert peasant rebellions into their accounts of Tibetan history, to achieve conformity with this structure required by political dogma.
For example, whilst Hugh Richardson, who lived in Lhasa in the s and s, before the takeover by the PRC inwrites in Tibet and Its History that Chinese versions of Tibetan history are contemptible and he considers the Chinese rule brutal and illegal,  Israel Epsteina naturalized Chinese citizen born in Poland who similarly claims the authority of first-hand knowledge, although following the Chinese takeover, supports Chinese rule.
Anthropologist and historian Melvyn Goldsteinwho is fluent in Tibetan and has done considerable fieldwork with Tibetans in exile and in Tibet, considers pre Tibet to have been a feudal theocracy impaired by corrupt and incompetent leaders.
Their position is that Tibet truly and historically belongs to China, that affairs of Tibet are internal matters, and Tibetans seek to internationalize their cause, in part by convincing readers that Tibet was independent.
These claims have particular resonance among people who share the assumption—based on nineteenth-century Western theories of "social evolution" that are still widely accepted in China—that certain forms of society are "backward" and should be helped to evolve by more "advanced" societies.
This form of prejudice converges with some earlier Chinese views and with vulgar Marxist theories that imagine a vanguard movement liberating the oppressed classes or nationalities in a society, whether or not those classes agree that they are oppressed.
Moreover, the Chinese have to present that oppression as very extensive, and that society as very primitive, in order to explain why there were no calls by the Tibetan peasantry for Chinese intervention on their behalf. The question of Tibet's social history is therefore highly politicized, and Chinese claims in this respect are intrinsic to the functioning of the PRC, and not some free act of intellectual exploration.
They have accordingly to be treated with caution. From a human rights point of view, the question of whether Tibet was feudal in the past is irrelevant. A more immediate question is why the PRC does not allow open discussion of whether Tibet was feudal or oppressive.
Writers and researchers in Tibet face serious repercussions if they do not concur with official positions on issues such as social conditions in Tibet prior to its "liberation," and in such a restrictive climate, the regime's claims on this issue have little credibility.
Some Tibetan sources describe the people as happy, content, and devoted to Buddhism.Jun 18, · Draft is a series about the art and craft of writing. Diagramming sentences: what, after all, is it good for? Well, for one thing, it’s obvious that it’s good for stirring up controversy.
