The list of literature below is, naturally, utterly incomplete when it comes to Tibetan matters of all kind, but it represents those books that either relate closely to the topic of the Panchen Lama controversy or, in the author’s humble opinion, they stand out from the rest.

[1] The Search for the Panchen Lama

[5] Hostage of Beijing
The Abduction of the Panchen Lama
By Gilles Van Grasdorff
ISBN: 1-86204-561-5

Note: This book was merely listed due to the intention of providing a complete record of works on the Panchen Lama subject. In all consequence, the combination of title and sub-title is utterly misleading. The book refers mostly to events in Tibetan history as they lead to the controversy, but it does not contain any information on the abduction of Gedhun Choekyi Nyima.
