Shen Tong with Marianne Yen, ALMOST A REVOLUTION: The Story of a Chinese Student's Journey from Boyhood to Leadership in Tiananmen Square , 1990

"In his groundbreaking memoir about China's democracy movement and the massacre at Tiananmen Square in June 1989, student leader Shen Tong offers us a rare look at a bold and daring new generation of Chinese citizens"

ALMOST A REVOLUTION is available for purchase or for full, on-line reading from Google Books.

Shen Tong today runs a foundation for China's democracy movements.


It is to be hoped for that those reading the memoir on-line, and having adequate above-subsistence level personal or family income or wealth, will make an off-setting contribution to a charity of their own choosing. Three suggestions:

Amnesty International

International Campaign for Tibet
