|Yin Fatang published a new book on Tibet|
A seminar on the historical meaning of the book "Liberating Tibet" as well as the history of Tibet was held in Beijing.
The book focuses on the history of modern Tibet with a time span of 16 years, said Yin Fatang, editor-in-chief and former first secretary of the Tibet Autonomous Regional Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC).
The compiling of the book took a total of nine years and involved labor of 88 editorial members, he added. The book has been reprinted for three times after it was first published last year, said the editor-in-chief.
"Liberating Tibet" consists of a lot of the most authoritative archives, including the historical archives of the Communist Party of China, Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) and Tibet Autonomous Regional Government as well as historical data from the UK and United States.
A lot of them are first hand and have never been made public before, said Yin.
