The legitimacy of Chinese Community Party rule over Tibet is one of the most sensitive political issues for China. Despite the claim of historical sovereignty by the CCP and China''s egalitarian policies over ethnic minorities, the legitimacy of the CCP''s rule of the area is still questioned. The legitimacy of rule lies in people''s trust and support of the regime. Voluminous research seeks to demonstrate the political support that Tibetan people have for the CCP regime. Little of it, however, is based on public opinion through empirical studies. Empirical studies are needed to explain the origins of community identity and political support in Tibet. This book suggests that language choice is a reliable indicator of community identity in Tibet for theoretical, historical, and practical reasons. Tibetan, Mandarin, and English are three language choices that are used to indicate three identities and three political communities in this paper. Using the data, this book demonstrates the patterns of identity of Tibetan students with survey data. I also use empirical evidence to test the attitudinal and demographic sources of the students'' variation in their community identities.
