Description
Traveling through not only China but also the U.S., Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, the author of Murder in Amsterdam here collects stories of Chinese people who have opposed their rulers. From the exiles of Tiananmen Square to Christians hidden in rural China, Ian Buruma gives us a dissident's eye-view of the world's most secretive superpower, observing, "Strange things happen when Chinese dynasties near their end."

"This wise and imaginative work—at once so sympathetic and so critically alert—could scarcely have been attempted by anyone but Buruma."—Colin Thubron
