Hanging Man: The Arrest of Ai Weiwei


Faber & Faber 245pp £14.99 order from our bookshop

Hanging Man is the most detailed, comprehensive and eloquent English-language account of what happens these days to Chinese political prisoners. It is horrifying and should make apologists for the People’s Republic of China, such as Martin Jacques, author of When China Rules the World, think again.
