Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chinese intellectuals have a traditional duty, for which there is no equivalent in the West: to worry, to "take responsibility for all under heaven,” to argue the question "What can we with China?" In this “utterly absorbing gem of a book” (), Perry Link conveys the worries besetting China’s most prominent writers, journalists, scientists, professors, and dissident officials. Link creates “an invaluable opening onto China’s best and brightest hearts and minds” (), allowing the Chinese themselves to tell us why Beijing took to the streets in Spring 1989.

Synopsis:

“A lively survey of today’s China as seen by [its] brooding intellectuals. A terrific book.” –Nicholas D. Kristof,

Synopsis:

Perry Link was present at many evening chats involving China's most prominent intellectuals. In conveying their worries here, he allows the Chinese themselves to tell us why Beijing took to the streets in spring 1989 and why China's crisis remains unresolved.
