A searing eyewitness account of what life was like in the prison camps of China during the 1960s and 1970s––through the rise of the Cultural Revolution and the Red Brigade, the death of Mao to the struggles of post–Maoist China. The author exposes the Chinese practice of exporting forced labor goods illegally into the U.S. Due to his appearance on ``Sixty Minutes′′ and a cover story in Newsweek, Harry Wu was invited to speak before Congress resulting in a continuing investigation regarding his findings.

Synopsis:

Detailing the story of one man's struggle to survive the Chinese Gulag and his daring return to China to tell the world what happened there, this is the true story of Harry Wu. In April 1960, the morning after his graduation from college, Wu was summarily arrested as a political criminal and, without a trial, found himself cast into a world of torture, interminable labour under extreme conditions and mass starvation. In this narrative, he relives the 19 harrowing years that followed. Finally released from prison in 1979, Wu was allowed to leave China for the USA in 1985. Determined to reveal the truth of the Gulag, he returned to China in 1991 with an American news crew. Posing as a US businessman buying prison goods, he took a hidden camera into the camps and captured on film, for the first time, images of the life behind the walls of the Chinese Gulag.
