Tyral (Mated to the Alien, dOf events transporting us next to the students who struggled and envisioned aifferent future for their country while Knocked Up by a Thug dreaming of their own personal happinessWhat makes this book special though is that itoesn t just have that Along with the narration of the events of the uprising shows us the life of our hero after it being in a coma after his serious head injury from a gunshot he tries to reconstruct the past while his mother is African or American?: Black Identity and Political Activism in New York City, 1784-1861 desperately trying to improve his condition This sad second narrative forms the basis on which the first is built and until the end the one follows the other and slowly the intensity that leads to the very strong finale is build where the violence of repression is paralleled by the eually violent genesis of the new China of the next century In this way the author manages too two things at once giving us on the one hand the history of the uprising with sensitivity and political insight and on the other a very strong allegorical commentary on modern China of enormous economic growth and non existent progress in human rights issues A really wonderful and very useful book 1989 i loved Ma Jain before this novel but this one sorry to say i could not finish with all my knowledge of China with my curiosity towards what happened in tian an man in june 1989 and i was there few The Logic of Self-Destruction days after i got lost Ma is a great writer good critic of the wrongs in china but i found this novel to cumbersome A book told from the stundent s point of view of the tianenmen suare massacre It s told retrospectively from a comatose students point of view and slips between his life and mind in the coma and his fatelful tale of those last few weeks before the massacre took place It gets a little boring in the middle i should say but is stunning in the last 200 pages Ma Jian has a interesting way ofescribing things in a very minimilistic way but in a way that enables you to picture the whole scene Worth a read Ma Jian s epic masterpiece about the 1989 Tiananmen Suare Protests will be present in your mind long after you put the book Around the Sacred Fire: Native Religious Activism in the Red Power Era down if you cano so Dai Wei a PhD student at Beijing University was struck by a bullet uring the massacre that followed the student protests As he lies in bed immobile for years he lives in his memories of the past He also silently lives in his memories of the past He also silently everything around his big iron bed trapped within his body His mother apartment friends and body break own around him while his mind remains unable to move or change This is a metaphor for the natural incessant beauty of China that Dai Wei loves which is unchanging amidst the country s political turmoil This book is a must read for anyone interested in Chinese culture Ma Jian s exuisite style takes you to the rain forests of Yunnan the sweaty southern provinces busy Beijing and explains the beauty of Hong Kongese women You become embroiled in his circle of friends and although there are MANY characters you feel as though they are your friends as well There are a few too many characters for my liking I believe that Jian tries to explain how vast the protests are but by the end you are a bit confused about all the minor characters All in all I am a little too young to remember these protests first hand and I am so glad "That I Learned About This Era Through This Book The "I learned about this era through this book The is beautiful and moving while still being historically accurate China in my mind will forever be shaped by Ma Jian and of course Dai Wei A REVOLUTIONARY GOVERNMENT SHOULD LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE NOTHING SHOULD FRIGHTEN IT MORE THAN SILENCE In a little less than a week comes the 28th anniversary of the Tiananmen Suare Massacre It would be an interesting calculation to add the ones who want to remember and subtract the ones who want everyone to forget and ivide all that by those who think it wasn t important and multiply by those who would ie for the sake of and multiply by those who would Stand and Deliver: Political Activism, Leadership, and Hip Hop Culture die for the sake of the aborted effort if they were only given the chance to know about it This isn t the only government cover up or the only slaughter of students by their own nation or even the only novel written about such things but the event and this book written about it might both be the most well known of their respective infamous categories Irony irony Historyoes it best Mou Sen had told me that if you The Wrong Complexion for Protection didn t read Kafka you never grasp the underlying principles of biologyJust think the litera.
