 When the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded on December 10, 2010, its recipient, Liu Xiaobo, was in Jinzhou Prison, serving an eleven-year sentence for what Beijing called“incitement to subvert state power.” In Oslo, actress Liv Ulmann read a long statement the activist had prepared for his 2009 trial. It read in part: “I stand by the convictions Iexpressed in my ‘June Second Hunger Strike Declaration’ twenty years ago—I have noenemies and no hatred. None of the police who monitored, arrested, and interrogatedme, none of the prosecutors who indicted me, and none of the judges who judged meare my enemies.”That statement is one of the pieces in this book, which includes writings span-ning two decades, providing insight into all aspects of Chinese life. Originally selectedby his wife, Liu Xia, these works not only chronicle a leading dissident’s struggleagainst tyranny but also enrich the recordof universal longing for freedom and dig-nity. Liu writes pragmatically, yet withdeep-seated passion, about peasant land dis-putes, the Han Chinese in Tibet, child slav-ery, the CCP’s Olympic strategy, theInternet in China, the contemporary craze for Confucius, and the Tiananmen massacre. Also presented are poems written for his wife, public documents, and a foreword by  Václav Havel. This collection is an aid to reflection for Western readers who might take forgranted the values Liu has dedicated his life to achieving for his homeland.
