This chapter explores the consequences of Chinese attempts at modernization and urbanization as imposed upon Tibet. It examines the likely shifts to occur in Tibet's ethnographic demography as a result of China's efforts at economic development, before surveying the latter in greater detail as China undergoes a “Great Uprooting” of its own, promoting, with her mammoth urbanization drive, rapid shifts from production to consumption, and from countryside to city and megacity. In addition, the chapter looks at the people who have been displaced as a result of this economic progress, before turning to China's tourism industry and how it echoes the discourse of displacement and belonging.

Keywords:   China, Tibet, ethnic minorities, urbanization, modernization, economic development, displacement, immigrants, tourism, colonization
