In his memoir about China's democracy movement and the massacre at Tiananmen Square in June 1989, student leader Shen Tong offers us a rare look at a bold and daring new generation of Chinese citizens who tried to protest the restraints imposed by their country's government. An organizer of the "dialogue delegation, " whose goal was to negotiate with the government, Shen provides an insider's record of the day-to-day decisions that led up to June 4. Coupled with much of the analysis that has been written over the ensuing years, Shen's firsthand account vividly contextualizes the Chinese government's opposition to democracy and offers meaningful insight into a country that promises to occupy an increasingly prominent position in the world to come.
