Harrison Salisbury is a distinguished American journalist who has written a score of valuable books on Russia, China and the United States during his long career. In this slim volume, Salisbury provides us with his diary of the 13 days in China at the time of the Tiananmen massacre and concludes with the following: "Back in Connecticut following Tiananmen and its aftermath, I think I have been able to fill out the story of the massacre-how it happened, why it happened, who was responsible, and what lies ahead."
