Phüntso Wangye agreed to Melvyn Goldstein to give statements for the epilogue of this book. First, in the decade up to and including 1949, there was a struggle to achieve progress and development for the Tibetan nationality, social reforms in Tibet, the happiness of the Tibetan people, and the reunification and liberation of the entire Tibetan nationality. Second, during Phüntso's life he was in charge of launching the Tibetan communist movement and establishing relationships with the Chinese Communist Party, the Soviet Communist Party, and the Indian Communist Party. The Dalai Lama is the main effective factor upon which the Tibetan issue depends. There is no reason to have suspicions regarding the intentions of the Dalai Lama, and no reason to distort his sincere, selfless thought or attack his incomparable character. To the contrary, as Mr. Wang Lixiong has said, he is the key to settling the Tibet issue.
