Reviews of My Book: "A Comprehensive, Detailed Account"

Merle Goldman is Professor Emerita of History at Boston University and Associate of the Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies at Harvard University. She recently provided the following blurb for my book:

Eddie Cheng's "Standoff at Tiananmen" provides a comprehensive, detailed account of the events that occurred in Beijing's Tiananmen Square in spring of 1989. Written in an engaging style, Cheng places the 1989 demonstrations in their historical context at the same time that he depicts the day to day joys and traumas of the participants. He not only describes the myriad of events that occurred at Tiananmen in 1989, but also the variety and characters of the people involved. There can be no better place to start to learn about this important event in post-Mao China than in "Standoff at Tiananmen."
