My latest book, “My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary” (with Baiqiao Tang) is now available in Kindle.
Some reviews, in case you missed them:
â€œ . . . beautifully written . . . Tang fully embraces the poetry and stories of China . . . His book is both a history lesson and a heart-wrenching read.â€
â€œHis Holiness hopes that this book will encourage other Chinese to strengthen their democratic aspirations and put the spotlight on the weakness of the attitudes of some of the current leaders in China.â€
Â from the book’s foreword by His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet.
â€œMy Two Chinas is beautifully writtenÂ byÂ BaiqiaoÂ Tang andÂ Damon DiMarco. The bravery shown by Tang and other Chinese students who stood up to the Communist Chinese government was extraordinary. Their story deserves to be known. This is the place to start.â€

Â â€œMy Two Chinas is a very personal and insightful story about one manâ€™s struggle to be free. I consider it a must-read for anyone encouraged by stories of hope and the good fight. Author Damon DiMarco brilliantly leads the reader through the maze of Baiqiao Tangâ€™s life as he runs from secret police, survives torture and imprisonment, and eventually escapes to the United States. But perhaps best of all, reading this book helped me to answer many questions I had regarding the events that transpired in the crackdown that followed Tiananmen Square. Many pro-democracy activists are still imprisoned in China today. I admire the courage and bravery shown by Baiqiao Tang and thousands of other Chinese like him who shined during those dark days.â€
Â from the bookâ€™s preface by Jeff Widener, Pulitzer-finalist, nominated for the acclaimed â€œTank Manâ€ photo taken at Tiananmen Square.
â€œThere are many Chineseâ€”more than a billion of themâ€”but there are relatively few to speak for them: to speak for their rights, their dignity, and their freedom. Baiqiao Tang is one such person. He speaks, not only for himself, but for masses of his countrymen, who are gagged. If the Communist dictatorship in China ever falls, Tang will be one of those who gave it a hard, wonderful push.â€
