After three winters and summers, he completed the book The Sino-British Competition and Debate on Tibet from 1927 to 1950. The book systematically explains the origin and evolution of the "Tibet issue", reveals the plot of the colonialists represented by the British government to split China by means of the "Tibet issue", and elaborates in detail the series of struggles launched by the Chinese government between 1927 and 1950 to safeguard the reunification of the motherland and against the anti-Chinese forces at home and abroad, focusing on the three major issues: the return of Panchen to Tibet, the demarcation between Kangzang and Tibet, and the central government's rule in Tibet. Efforts will ultimately lead to the conclusion that China's own development is the key to a thorough solution to the Tibetan problem.
