“My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary” recounts my co-author Tang Baiqiao’s experiences as a student leader during the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989; how he was subsequently hunted by the Chinese government and jailed for his pro-democracy activities; the physical and mental tortures he endured while in prison; his release, and eventual flight to the U.S.
Despite living in exile these past 21 years, Tang Baiqiao hasÂ never relented in his campaign to bring human rights and freedom to his homeland, and throughout the world.
“My Two Chinas” features a foreword by His Holiness, Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet.Â
Prof. Robert Thurman, noted expert on China and Tibet, will contribute an introduction.Â
Jeff Widener, the world-renowned photojournalist and Pulitzer-finalist who took the iconic “Tank Man” photo has contributed a preface.
