Captive Spirits is the gripping prison memoir of Yang Xiguang, a high school student who was arrested during the Cultural Revolution for writing a political essay. He spent the next ten years in a succession of Chinese gulags and vividly relates the poignant stories of his cellmates--activists, intellectuals, "rightists," thieves, and madmen--as well as his own intellectual and spiritual journey.

Yang Xiguang is Reader in the Department of Economics at Monash University, Australia. Susan McFadden is a writer and translator based in Princeton.Review:
"Lively, funny, sad, thought-provoking. It is not principally about politics, but people--those who crowded with Yang into dark cells in the 1970s. From murderers to capitalists to Christians, he gives us a glimpse of the 'little people' of China, their ways and their fates."--South China Morning Post
