China Rising: The Meaning Of Tiananmen

By Lee Feigon
Ivan R. Dee, 1990
269 pp. $19.95

What gives special significance to this eyewitness account of the events leading up to the Tiananmen massacre is the fact that the author, a China historian from Colby College, places the democracy movement in historical perspective. He is not particularly sanguine about the future. He holds that the Chinese communist bureaucracy is determined to retain power and may well be able to do so for a very long time.
