Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At a time when the worlds attention is focused on China, Asia-based journalist, Frank Ching, presents an intelligent and informed perspective on that countrys human rights situation.

China is one of the great nations of the world, containing roughly twenty per-cent of the population of the globe. Its economy is booming, and its role on the worlds stage is increasingly influential. Yet this fascinating country is as complex as it is unusual, and a nation in which the population is denied many fundamental human rights.

This powerfully written and incisive book throws light on Chinas record today. From restrictions on free speech and worship to the lack of freedoms under the law, in the economy, in health matters and the environment, former Wall Street Journal Beijing bureau chief, Frank Ching, offers a well-informed perspective on what the inhabitants of this vast state might or might not do in the future.

Synopsis:

With roughly 20 percent of the globes population and a booming economy, Chinas international importance continues to grow rapidly. Yet for all its economic and international stature, this fascinating country remains politically unusual and complex, as many of its inhabitants are denied fundamental human rights. This powerfully written and incisive study throws light on the recent history and current status of Chinas human rights policies. Covering issues ranging from the restrictions on speech and worship to the lack of freedom in the judicial, economic, public health, and environmental sectors, it provides a well-informed look at the social limits placed on the citizens of this vast state.
