Wei Jingsheng is a fearless fighter for individual rights in China, and has spent nearly all of the last 17 years in prison. From his solitary confinement cell, he has written defiant letters to Deng Xiaoping and other communist leaders expressing his views on economic reform, foreign investment, Tibet and other urgent social and political concerns. This book also contains letters to family and friends and a selection of political essays and his moving defence statement from his first trial.
