about

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 do with China?" In this utterly absorbing gem of a book (Library Journal), 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 (Kirkus Reviews), allowing the Chinese themselves to tell us why Beijing took to the streets in Spring 1989.
