Tibet-Book-Woeser-2015Dharamshala: - The Taiwanese edition of poet Tsering Woeser's book – Immolations au Tibet, La Honte du Monde [Immolations in Tibet: The Shame of the World] – will be published on March 6.

The book – which was first published in France in 2013 – analyses the Tibetan self-immolation protests that have proliferated in and out of Tibet since 2009, where at least 135 instances of self-immolation have taken place, with 116 of those resulting in death.

It has been re-titled Tibet Phoenix for its Mandarin-language version. The new title – whose bird is famous in Greek mythology for its characteristic rebirth from the ashes of its predecessor – signifies Woeser's hope for the Tibetan people.

"I want the book to speak to the whole world, to make them care about suffering in Tibet. Currently,
the world compromises with an unjust China," she told The Tibet Post International.

Like Immolations au Tibet, Tibet Phoenix will feature cover art by Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei, as well as drawings by acclaimed artists Liu Yi and Tomoyo Ihaya.
