The Black Hands of Beijing: Lives of Defiance in China's Democracy Movement
By George Black and Robin Munro
John Wiley & Sons, 1993, 390 pp. $24.95 Purchase

This is a largely descriptive account of the lives of three of the leaders of the Chinese democracy movement who were jailed for their participation in the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989. The authors provide some limited new sources of understanding of the origins and course of the democracy movement and help to place it in a meaningful analytical context.
