A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. xlv + 513 pages. Map endpapers and 3 other maps. Afterword by Orville Schell, Dean of Graduate Studies in Journalism, University of California, Bekeley. The events of the Beijing Spring of 1989 were among the most momentous of China's tumultuous 20th century. What began as peaceful memorial demonstrations following the death of of popular reform leader Hu Yaobang soon developed into a massive pro-democracy movement, with Tiananmen Square its focal point. The book offers an astonishing account of the events - from inside the heart of the Politburo itself. It consists of excerpts from approximately 1,000 documents detailing the highest-level processes of decision-making during that fateful period, and from records of their meetings and private conversations, we learn what the leaders said among themselves as they discussed the unfolding events - how they debated the students' motives, whom they identified as their main enemies, and why they waited as long as they did before ordering the troops to move in. Perhaps most dramatic of all, we have definitive evidence of who voted how on key issues, and their reasons, given in their own words. We learn also how Jiang Zemin came to power, who chose him and why. **** A HEAVY VOLUME OF 1.04 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST ****
