About this title


The Chinese emerge as a heroic, fascinating people of abiding humanity who surpires you with their understanding of the past and their hope for the future in the face of seemingly unsolvable problems. "Clearly" write the author, the party and the government are serious about trying to modernize the country and even if their definitions of free speech and democracy remain travesties, they are lesser traversties than those which prevailed for over a decade. The spirit of the Democracy Wall is down, but not out. To dismiss that movement is to dismiss the potential of the Chinese people to rise above their lot. The Chinese is a remarkable, exciting book, an invaluable and captivating portrait of a people.
