China's Great Leap: The Beijing Games and Olympian Human Rights Challenges - used book

2008, ISBN: 9781583228432

ID: 7164339

An essential book for understanding China on the cusp of the Olympics, "China's Great Leap" draws on the expertise of many of the world's leading China experts. These writers examine the People's Republic of China today as its government and 1.3 billion people prepare for the 2008 Olympic Games. When Beijing first sought the Games, China was still recovering from the upheavals of Maoist rule and adapting to a market revolution. Today China wants to engage with the outside world-while fully controlling the engagement. How will the new leaders in Beijing manage the Olympic process and the internal and external pressures for reform it creates? "China's Great Leap" will illuminate China's recent history and outline how domestic and international pressures in the context of the Olympics could achieve human rights change. Learn about key areas for human rights reform and how the Olympics could represent a possible great leap forward for the people of China and for the world. With contributions from Joseph Amon, Bao Tong, Frank Ching, Jerome A. Cohen, Arvind Ganesan, R. Scott Greathead, Han Dongfang and Geoffrey Crothall, Sharon Hom, John Kamm, Phelim Kine, Jimmy Lai, Liu Xiaobo, Martin Lee, Christine Loh, Emily Parker, Kenneth Roth, Sophie Richardson, Mickey Spiegel, Wang Dan, and Dave Zirin. As Media Director of Human Rights Watch, Minky Worden monitors crises, wars, human rights abuses, and political developments in more than seventy countries worldwide. From 199298, Worden lived and worked in Hong Kong as an adviser to Democratic Party chairman Martin Lee. Worden is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, speaks Cantonese and German, and is an elected member of the Overseas Press Club's Board of Governors. She is the co-editor of "Torture: Does It Make Us Safer? Is It Ever Ok? A Human Rights Perspective."
