Product Overview

The most distinguished Chinese journalist of the past fifty years, LiuBinyan has earned the sobriquet "China''s conscience." Between 1956 and1987, there were nine years during which the Communist Party of China allowed Liu towrite the truth as he saw it. Expelled from the Party in 1957, later re-admitted andexpelled again, he has lived in exile since 1988. He has continued indefatigably toread, think, and write about his beloved China: the saga of its modern history, themoral wasteland of its present condition, and its place in the global order. In TwoKinds of Truth Liu reflects on these issues and turns his incisive intellect to suchtopics as the unseen consequences of the Cold War, the roots of global terrorism, and whether "socialism with a human face" is possible. This volumereprints the 1983 collection People or Monsters? and offers four new essays and alengthy interview with Perry Link.
