Description
Information
An enthralling account of modern China, 'Wild Grass' depicts the small pockets of grass roots resistance against corruption and oppression within the all powerful Communist Party. It is a history told through the stories of the Chinese people, as Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Ian Johnson recounts the individual struggles of three people he encountered while living in China. He describes a former Red Guard turned paralegal, jailed for fighting against illegal taxes; a young architect who exposed the destruction of Beijing's ancient buildings; and the daughter of a Falun Gong convict, seeking answers about her mother's death in prison.
