Challenging China: Struggle and Hope in an Era of Change


Manufacturer: The New Press

Product Information

"Interest in China has never been greater, but the voices of the Chinese themselves often escape notice. Here, finally, is a book that reverses the trend by giving us a rare and important portrait of contemporary life within China - “written with style, honesty, and expertise born of intimate and often painful experience” (Ian Buruma). Mixing powerful personal stories with sobering analysis, this revealing book encompasses a broad range of social issues, from underage prostitution to the crackdown on religion. Featuring some of the first-ever eyewitness accounts from Chinese dissidents and their families - including testimony by the relatives of the imprisoned and the executed and descriptions of life in exile - Challenging China offers rare glimpses of the country’s ongoing political turmoil, as well as hope in the rising collective resistance. By turns moving, illuminating, and outraged, Challenging China is a revealing portrait of a country whose internal politics we can no longer afford to ignore."

Edited by Sharon Horn and Stacy Mosher, published by The New Press, 2008.
