Description

The mass protests that erupted in China during the spring of 1989 were not confined to Beijing and Shanghai. Cities and towns across the great breadth of China were engulfed by demonstrations, which differed regionally in content and tone: the complaints and protest actions in prosperous Fuijan Province on the south China coast were somewhat different from those in Manchuria or inland Xi'an or the country towns of Hunan. The variety of the reactions is a barometer of the political and economic climate in contemporary China. In this book, Western China specialists who were on the spot that spring describe and analyze the upsurges of protest that erupted around them.

Table of Contents

You Never Can Tell is an interweaving of timeless plots that merit a fresh retelling - and the reader is the benefector of Mike Sharpe's spirited reinventions. The companion work, Smog, is a dystopian novella in which the presumably knowledgeable, affluent members of society are blind to all that is happening around them. Preoccupied with their own concerns, they fail to heed the warning signs as disaster engulfs the land.
