Author of “Death by China” praises “My Two Chinas”

On 08, Feb 2011 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

Greg Autry knows China, and knows it well.

A gifted technology entrepreneur, Greg has taught Business Strategy, Entrepreneurship, High Tech management, and Macroeconomics at the Merage School of Business, UC. Irvine. He holds a degree in History from the California Polytechnic University at Pomona, and an MBA from Merage School of Business, UC Irvine. Now he’s going for his PhD in between writing extensively on the topic of China.

Greg’s new book will appear from Pearson this year. “Death by China: Confronting the Dragon – A Global Call to Action” is written with Peter Navarro, another expert on the economics of China (who also endoresed “My Two Chinas.”

On “My Two Chinas,” Greg says:

“This well-crafted tale of one man’s ordeal and his message of hope should be required reading in the West. We cannot continue to ignore the human cost that results from turning a blind eye to tyranny in exchange for low-cost consumer goods. Do not subscribe to the illusion that China is developing an ‘open and harmonious’ society. My Two Chinas provides a serious reminder of what happened in 1989, as well as a revealing look at what lurks behind the false smiles of China’s current, more media-savvy leaders.
 
I read My Two Chinas on a long flight to Shanghai, and I simply could not put my iPad down. The long flight was over before I realized it. But on this trip, I saw the landscape around me from a very different perspective. I will never look at China the same way again. Mr. Tang and Mr. DiMarco have done China and the world a service by producing this engaging book. My Two Chinas makes learning some very ugly truths a most enjoyable read.”

– Greg Autry, noted entrepreneur and author on Chinese affairs, The Paul Merage School of Business, University of California, Irvine

Member of U.S. – China Economic Security Review Commission Endorses “My Two Chinas”

On 12, Dec 2010 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

The U.S. – China Economic Security Review Commission was created in 2000 to monitor, investigate, and submit to the U.S. Congress an annual report on the national security implications of the bilateral trade and economic relationship between the United States and the People’s Republic of China. Where appropriate, the Commission also advises Congress on courses for legislative and administrative action.

Public Law 109-108 directs the Commission to focus its work and study on the following eight areas:

  •  proliferation practices
  • economic transfers
  • energy
  • U.S. capital markets
  • regional economic and security impacts
  • U.S. – China bilateral programs, WTO compliance, and
  • the implications of restrictions on speech and access to information in the People’s Republic of China.

The Commission is composed of 12 members, three of whom are selected by each of the Majority and Minority Leaders of the Senate, and the Speaker and the Minority Leader of the House. The Commissioners serve two-year terms.

Commissioner Jerry L. Fiedler was recently reappointed by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for his third term. Of “My Two Chinas,” Commissioner Fiedler writes:

“In the face of oppression most people cower, a few cannot.  Baiqiao Tang acted in 1989 and still strives to change China today.  His struggle teaches us much about the transformation of ordinary people into extraordinary human beings.  This is the amazing story of one man’s journey of constant confrontation and his unbreakable spirit.  To read it helps you understand the many nameless and faceless men and women standing up every day to China’s persistent repression.”

 – Jeffrey Fiedler, U.S. China Economic Security and Review Commission

Noted Author Says “Do Penance by Picking Up a Copy of This Book”

On 06, Dec 2010 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

Steven W. Mosher is a writer who publishes on China and speaks both Mandarin and Cantonese. He is the president of the Population Research Institute in Virginia, a pro-life organization with connections to Human Life International (both were started by Father Paul Marx). He is the author of numerous non-fiction books such as “Broken Earth: The Rural Chinese” (1983), A Mother’s Ordeal, and Hegemon.

In 1979 Mosher became the first American research student to conduct anthropological research in rural China after the Cultural Revolution. At the time he was married to a woman from Guangdong province, and for several months between 1979 and 1980 lived in rural Guangdong. He also traveled to Guizhou, a remote and unvisited part of China. In 1981 Mosher was denied re-entry to China by the Chinese government, which considered he had broken its laws and acted unethically.

On “My Two Chinas,” Mr. Mosher says:

My Two Chinas is one of the most moving, witty, and entertaining memoirs to come out of China since the 1989 Tiananmen demonstrations, a graceful collaboration between a splendid mind that yearns for a free China and the sure pen of his English collaborator.  As we travel with Baiqiao Tang, one of China’s most famous dissidents, through his days of demonstration, flight, imprisonment and exile, we are reminded of the rule of terror that lies behind China’s growing military and economic might.  The next time that economy compels you to buy something made in China, do penance by picking up and reading a copy of this book as well.”

– Steven W. Mosher, President of the Population Research Institute; author of A Mother’s Ordeal, China Misperceived, Journey to the Forbidden China, and Broken Earth.

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 has 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.

Noted Author Gets Frank About “My Two Chinas”

On 01, Dec 2010 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

Peter Navarro is the author of If It’s Raining in Brazil, Buy Starbucks, as well as The Well-Timed Strategy: Managing the Business Cycle for Competitive Advantage; What the Best MBAs Know; When the Market Moves, Will You Be Ready?; and The Coming China Wars.  

His latest book, co-authored with Columbia Business School Dean Glenn Hubbard, is Seeds of Destruction. It explains what the U.S. economy has suffered from a decade of sluggishness and offers a “Seeds of Prosperity” policy blueprint to restore American prosperity. 

Professor Navarro’s work has appeared in Barron’s, Business Week, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the Harvard Business Review, among other publications. He has frequently appeared on Bloomberg TV and radio, CNN, NPR, Marketplace, and all three major network news shows. He is a regular CNBC contributor and has appeared on 60 Minutes. 

Of “My Two Chinas,” Professor Navarro writes: 

“Over the years, I’ve watched many American pundits, corporate executives, and politicians kowtow to China on any number of issues – from China’s Internet censorship and theft of intellectual property to currency manipulation and attacks on the Pentagon.  These cowards should draw courage from the example of a man like Baiqiao Tang – who stood up for democracy and freedom in the belly of the Communist beast and, miraculously, has lived to tell us all about it.” 

– Peter Navarro, author of The Coming China Wars and Professor of Economics and Public Policy, Merage School of Business, University of California-Irvine 

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.

Epoch Times Runs Front Page Article on “My Two Chinas”

On 23, Nov 2010 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

The Epoch Times is an international newspaper founded by members of the Falun Gong movement. The paper offers coverage on general interest issues, China, and human rights, with a slant that reflects the admitted bias of the publication’s founders.

A winner of several international human rights in journalism awards, The Epoch Times has gained a solid reputation for levying criticism against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), as well as the policies of the Chinese government.

Headquartered in New York City, the newspaper maintains local bureaus and a network of local reporters throughout the world. It is either sold or distributed free-of-charge in roughly 30 countries worldwide, and maintains editions in English, Chinese, nine other languages in print, and 17 on the web.

The paper’s worldwide circulations was listed as 1.3 million in 2009, with a Chinese-language circulation of 105,000 in the New York City area alone.

An interview with my co-author, Tang Baiqiao, as well as an overview of “My Two Chinas” dominated the front page of The Epoch Times North American Chinese-language edition on November 23, 2010.

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.

Expert French Sinologist Praises “My Two Chinas”

On 22, Nov 2010 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

Noted French scholar, Jean-Philippe Béja holds degrees from the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris (IEP), the University of Paris VII (Chinese), the Centre de Formation des Journalistes (CFJ), and the University of Liaonning (Chinese Literature). His Ph.D. in Asian studies was awarded by the University of Paris VII.

 Dr. Béja is the former scientific director of the Centre d’Etudes Français sur la Chine Contemporaine in Hong Kong (1993- 1997). He is also the former editor-in-chief (and currently a member of the editorial board) of China Perspectives / Perspectives chinoises. He also serves as an Advisor to the China Institute of the University of Science and Technology and to the China Observatory in Lisbon. His work focuses on the transformations of Chinese society and the Chinese political system.

Of “My Two Chinas,” Dr. Béja writes:

“Tang Baiqiao’s My Two Chinas is a terribly moving story that shows how a promising young idealist has been considered a criminal by an implacable system. The detailed account of Tang’s eighteen months in jail reminds us that, in the Chinese provinces, wardens and cadres are often brutes who enjoy torturing the inmates. We cannot afford to forget the courage of those young people who took part in the 1989 pro-democracy movement. Their resolve shook China and the world. This is a fascinating account of the itinerary of a generation.”

– Jean-Philippe Béja, author of The Impact of China’s 1989 Tiananmen Massacre; Senior Research Fellow, CNRS (National Centre for Scientific Research)-CERI (Centre for International Studies and Research), Paris, France

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 has never relented in his campaign to bring human rights and freedom to his homeland, and throughout the world.

Founder of China Support Network Endorses “My Two Chinas”

On 02, Nov 2010 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

The China Support Network (CSN) is a U.S.-based organization promoting democracy for mainland China. CSN provides news, commentary, information, and analysis on events, issues, demonstrations, and government policy related to their cause. According to the organization, it supports democratic reform, human rights, and freedom in China.

The China Support Network was founded by John Patrick Kusumi in 1989, who serves as its President. The organization opposes China’s current government, the Communist Party of China, and has worked with Chinese student leaders who left China following the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 and continues to have a working relationship with Chinese dissidents and the Chinese democracy movement in the United States.

On “My Two Chinas,” Mr. Kusumi writes:

“Economics aside, China has the misfortune to be ruled by Communists, dictators, tyrants, and thugs. In 1989, the Tiananmen Square massacre was world news. This book, by an authentic student leader of the uprising, is one part personal memoir; one part back story on a major world event; and one part follow up, casting light on the Chinese democracy movement in exile, where the fight continues. Tang Baiqiao is a dynamic campaigner who continues to fight the good fight. He and his co-author Damon DiMarco have rendered a blow-by-blow account in a book that is engaging, accessible for general readers, and clear as a bell. Perhaps the book will serve as a wake up call for the international community, which should step up efforts at democracy promotion for such an important country. The China Support Network highly recommends this book.”

– John P. Kusumi, founder of the pro-democracy China Support Network

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 has never relented in his campaign to bring human rights and freedom to his homeland, and throughout the world.

National Review endorses “My Two Chinas”

On 21, Oct 2010 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

National Review was founded in 1955 by iconclast conservative William F. Buckley, Jr. (who wrote a nice endorsement for my first book Tower Stories: An Oral History of 9/11 once upon a time).  

On my latest book, “My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary” (with Tang Baiqiao), the Review’s senior editor, Jay Nordlinger writes:

“There are many Chinese—more than a billion of them—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.”

 Jay Nordlinger, Senior Editor, National Review

My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary” recounts  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 has never relented in his campaign to bring human rights and freedom to his homeland, and throughout the world.
