About this product
- DescriptionThis title provides a timely, intelligent, illuminating memoir from one of the leading figures in the Chinese Pro-Democracy movement. At this moment, people in China are being imprisoned and tortured by their own government. These people are t hardened criminals, murderers, thieves, or terrorists. They've done thing wrong. They are student leaders, journalists, bloggers, human rights activists, and monks whose only 'crime' is that they want democracy. They want their voices to be heard in a nation they've helped to build. My Two Chinas is the memoir of one such political prisoner. Baiqiao Tang is one of China's most influential modern dissidents. Tang's name became legendary during the time of the Tiananmen Square massacre. Over the past 21 years, he has remained on the front lines of the Chinese pro-democracy movement, where he has vowed to keep fighting until the dream of a free China is realized. This unique, timely, suspenseful, and ultimately inspiring memoir will resonate with people from all walks of life and from all backgrounds who care about human rights and the future of free society.
