The forces released by the Chinese dissident student movement have not been completely suppressed, despite the brutal crackdown that followed the Tiananmen Square massacre. In China a new generation is coming to power, taking over from the gerontacracy which has characterized the Chinese government for so long. Comprised of technocrats and entrepreneurs, businessmen and intellectuals, the new breed is determined to remove the lingering shadows of totalitarianism and corruption. Beginning with a survey of the Tiananmen Square massacre and the events leading up to it, the book offers an assessment of the changes occurring in this doggedly enigmatic country. It takes readers into the heart of modern China, painting a tableau of a country now racked by almost continual radical change. Orville Schell has won awards for his reporting on China, and is the author of "Discos and Democracy" and "To Get Rich is Glorious".
