The Machinery of Repression in China

Book - 2009
Rate this:
Smuggled out of the People's Republic of China, this collection of shocking photographs vividly and eloquently exposes the abysmal human rights record of one of the world's most authoritarian states, giving lie to the widespread notion that China is heading towards democracy. With essays from leading Chinese scholar Andrew Nathan and dissident Harry Wu, Laogai discusses the wide range of challenges faced by China - from freedom of expression and religion to police brutality, state execution and more. Carefully researched and filled with tales of eye-opening horror.
