About the Author

Fang Lizhi, a Chinese astrophysicist who has emerged in the last decade as China’s most eloquent advocate of democracy and academic freedom, has been called “China’s Andrei Sakharov.” In the wake of the Tiananmen Square massacre in June 1989, he sought asylum at the American Embassy in Beijing, where he remained for 386 days. He is currently affiliated with the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton University.
