In the aftermath of the Tiananmen Square massacre of June 1989, a group of scholars formed the China Documentation Project to gather information and interview witnesses of the Democracy Movement on its violent suppression. The author was a key member of that group. His book provides a chilling narrative of events from April 1989 up to and beyond the scenes that shocked the world. Filled with vivid personal accounts, the study analyzes the role and actions of the military as well as the protestors. Brook also presents controversial evidence revealing how close China came to intramilitary conflict, as units which had participated in the massacre were confronted by those who had not.show more
