Using Kenneth Burke's concept of dramatism as a way of exploring multiple motivations in symbolic expression, Tibet on Fire examines the Tibetan self-immolation movement of 2011-2015. The volume asserts that the self-immolation act is an affirmation of Tibetan identity in the face of cultural genocide.

About the Author:

John Whalen-Bridge is Associate Professor in the Department of English Language and Literature at National University of Singapore

Review:

“Aside from its particular focus on performances and rhetoric–which may interest those already familiar with the self-immolations–Tibet on Fire also serves as a general introduction to the Tibetan self-immolation phenomenon, and provides comprehensive, introductory-level background on Tiber-China history, Tibetan Buddhism, and international politics vis-à-vis the Tibet-China conflict. Tibet on Fire may thus also be of interest to those seeking a general introduction to the self-immolations themselves as well as the Tibet-China conflict in general.” (Benjamin Wood, Journal of Global Buddhism, Vol. 17, 2016)
