Published: Oxford University Press, USA - June 4th, 2014

Lim's superb investigative history reflects on a China still suffering the effects of Tiananmen 25 years on. Despite the passage of a quarter of a century, the details of that day in 1989 remain obscure and often (intentionally) forgotten. An in-depth look at the human cost of history. ~ Reviewed by Cheryl Cornwell
