Read full description of the books The Gate of Heavenly Peace: The Chinese and Their Revolution:In this masterful, highly original approach to modern Chinese history, Jonathan D. Spence shows us the Chinese revolution through the eyes of its most articulate participants-the writers, historians, philosophers, and insurrectionsists who shaped and were shaped by the turbulent events of this century.
