I’mÂ under contract with Prometheus Books to write My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary with noted political dissident Tang Baiqiao.
Â As a student leader from Hunan Province, Mr. Tang helped to organize the protests that later culminated in the so-called â€œJune 4th Incidentâ€ in Tiananmen Square, Beijing in 1989.
Mr. Tang was hunted down and thrown in jail by the Chinese Communist government for nearly three years. During this time he was tortured both mentally and physically.
With the aid of the underground Pro Democracy movement in China, he later escaped to Hong Kong where he was granted political asylum by the United States. Since 1992,Â he has led the fight for a free and Democratic China while in exile.
Tentative release date: Early 2011.
