The area comprising the present-day TAR, had been under the control of the Government of Tibet since shortly after the fall of the Qing Dynasty in 1911. These regions came under the control of the PRC after a military conflict in the Qamdo (or Chamdo) area of Western Kham in October 1950, and the eventual acceptance of the Seventeen Point Agreement by the Government of Tibet and the PRC in October 1951. The Government of Tibet and Tibetan social struc¬ture remained in place intheTAR under the authority of the PRC until the 1959 Tibetan uprising, when the Dalai Lama fled into exile and after which the Government of Tibet was dissolved.]
