eBook - 2001
Rate this:
China's boldest advocate for press and speech freedom provides a collection of his 1981-1999 writings to the government, party officials, and China's intellectual community. Sun's intention is not opposition. With logic and passion, he evokes the country's founding premises, the proletariat's centrality, and early market-economy successes to chisel away at entrenched centralism and lingering feudalism.

Xupei (journalism, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Institute of Journalism and Communication) argues for increased freedom of speech and freedom of the press in the People's Republic of China. He describes not only the current state of affairs in China, but also the historical and ideological roots of the struggle for a free press. He describes this freedom as a process and outlines the possibilities for reform, suggesting that it requires a renewed understanding of the idea of journalism and a re-casting of both journalistic and individual rights.
