Why the Dalai Lama Matters (Beyond Words) is more than a book about Tibet or the Dalai Lama. It is a revealing, provocative solution for a world in conflict, dealing with the fundamentals of human rights and freedoms. By showing the work that the Dalai Lama has done on behalf of his people, Tibetan scholar Robert Thurman illuminates a worldwide call to action, showing that power gained by might means nothing in the face of a determined act of truth.
