"Henry Rosemont raises hard questions, commonly overlooked, and does so with sensitivity, compassion, and broad understanding. The questions focus on modern China, but extend far beyond, to general problems of development, the moral foundations of civilization, and the nature of a just society. It is a challenging and thoughtful enquiry."
—Noam Chomsky

Book Description Open Court Publishing Co ,U.S., United States, 1999. Paperback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English. Brand new Book. Ever since Chinese students began marching towards Tiananmen Square in mid-April 1989, they have been portrayed as idealistic young freedom fighters, struggling valiantly, but ultimately unsuccessfully, against a totalitarian regime made up of power-hungry octogenarians. "A Chinese Mirror" reflects a rather different picture, one that is more socially and politically complex, and morally troublesome. Against the specific background of the events of June 4th, the author (who was in Beijing at the time) proffers a more general analysis and evaluation of the economic "reforms" initiated by the Party leadership in 1978, concluding that a capitalist model of development has brought - and cannot but bring - the moral and other failures of capitalism, with few of its benefits, to China. Using China as a case study, "A Chinese Mirror" also introduces an ethical model of development for agrarian societies.Citizens of the capitalist industrial democracies must rethink the criteria by which they evaluate the foreign policies of their governments, especially policies purportedly aimed at assisting very poor countries, whose inhabitants still live in extremely primitive conditions - but comprise more than half of the human race.
