This book opens a new way for us to understand modern China, a society that is still very distant but increasingly present in our lives. It reminds us, in Ai Weiwei's words in the Citizen Investigation appeal that, "Your actions create your world." A great lesson in democracy, freedom and courage. --Roberta Tenconi
