Publishers Weekly, abbreviated PW, is an American weekly trade news magazine targeted at publishers, librarians, booksellers and literary agents.

About “My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary” with Baiqiao Tang
“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.
