    Abstract: China and human rights have been viewed by the western world as being the perfect case of a square peg in a round hole. Though China has had a long tradition of suppressing dissenting voices, but the matter first came to light before the global audience during the ’89 Democracy Movement. As such, today the issue of human rights abuse, forms of resistance and rebellion in the Tianxia has provided the much needed ammunition to the western press. Some of these concerns, particularly those relating to human rights, in China find their reflections in the book under review.
