Laogai--the Chinese Gulag by Hongda Harry Wu( Book )

20 editions published between 1991 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this original and evocative work, Hongda Harry Wu reveals the hidden world of the laogaidui--the PRC's labor reform camps--to the Western reader. Wu, himself a survivor of nineteen years in the camps, takes the reader through the harsh landscape found there. He thoroughly explains their ideological origins, complex structure, and living conditions--which the author claims are approached only by the Nazi concentration camps and the Soviet Gulag. What makes the PRC's laogaidui unique, according to Wu, is the essential contribution to China's GNP of the commodities produced by the prisoners and the concomitant indispensability to the nation's economic health. The author bolsters the text with a rich compilation of photographs, charts, and maps that reflect his exhaustive research and personal history in the camps. This book provides a comprehensive view of the grim reality of the labor camps, presenting a rare glimpse into the inner workings of the PRC

Laogai : the machinery of repression in China( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in Chinese and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An eloquent and vivid summary in shocking, never-before-seen photographs smuggled out of the People's Republic of China, LAOGAI exposes the human rights record of the world's most authoritarian state-a nation whose own remarkable transformation has not extended to the basic demands of its people for freedom." "From the coal mines of Sichuan to the giant plantation farms of Zhejiang, the vast spiderweb of the Chinese prison system has its tentacles into every corner of the country, with over three million slave laborers working to make the economic miracle happen. With essays from leading Chinese scholar Andrew J. Nathan and leading dissident Harry Wu, this book discusses the wide range of challenges China faces: from freedom of expression to religious choice, from police brutality to state execution, as well as controversial issues like torture, organ trafficking, forced sterilization, and more." "This carefully researched book includes a comprehensive timeline, recent Chinese history of human rights, reading list, and resource information including lists of banned books, websites, controversial art, and more. It pretexts tales of eye-opening horror, heartbreak, and heroism, as dozens of former prisoners of the Laogai share their individual stories and reveal the pain and dirt that underlies China's shiny modern surface. Moving and disturbing, LAOGAI gives lie to the notion that China is headed to democratization, and urges that on the occasion of the People's Republic's 60th anniversary, we take an honest look at human rights in China, with the chilling knowledge of how the apparatus of control and oppression in this last great communist power remains unchanged."--BOOK JACKET

Bitter winds : a memoir of my years in China's Gulag by Hongda Harry Wu( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout this stunning chronicle are moving stories of the prisoners who became Wu's trusted friends. The gentle, lute-playing Ao, unblinking in his insistence on the dignity of humanity, serves as a beacon in the moral abyss of the camps. Handsome and virile Lu, tormented by unfulfilled longing for a woman's touch, is driven to insanity and finally suicide. Buffeted by the worst horrors of the Chinese communist tragedy, these poignant figures provide a rare, detailed portrait of the depths of human despair. Released from prison in 1979, Harry Wu was eventually allowed to leave China for the United States. But his story does not end there. Determined to expose the truth of the gulag, he returned to China in 1991 with a "60 Minutes" news crew. Posing as a U.S. businessman buying prison goods, he risked his life by smuggling a hidden camera into the camps and capturing on film, for the first time, haunting images of life behind those forbidding walls

Autobiografisch verslag van een Chinese intellectueel die zonder enige vorm van proces negentien jaar werd opgesloten in werkkampen
Troublemaker : one man's crusade against China's cruelty by Hongda Harry Wu( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world was captivated in the summer of 1995, when Harry Wu, a Chinese-born American citizen, was detained at the Chinese border and then later formally arrested on spying charges. To the autocrats of the Chinese Communist Party in Beijing, Harry Wu is nothing but a convicted criminal and spy, an unrepentant counterrevolutionary who spent nineteen years in labor camps and has taken revenge by secretly entering China under false names to steal state secrets. To the rest of the world, Harry Wu is an extraordinarily courageous man, one of the most prominent expatriate Chinese dissidents, whose Laogai Research Foundation publicizes abuses in the Chinese penal system. Laogai is Chinese for "reform through labor," and the term, which is used to denote the labor camp system, has become analogous to the Soviet gulag, the nationwide archipelago of camps made famous by Alexander Solzhenitsyn's great work. For sixty-six days, the world waited to see if Harry Wu would be sent back to prison. His detention was considered so important that both houses of the U.S. Congress passed resolutions condemning the Chinese authorities and urging President Clinton to use every diplomatic means to win his freedom. Only after his mock trial and expulsion from the country did Hillary Rodham Clinton announce that she would attend the United Nations women's conference held in Beijing. Wu has returned to China secretly four times, compiling written and video information on the extensive prison system and many other abuses. In Troublemaker, Wu tells why the Chinese authorities rightly denounce him as the country's "No. 1 troublemaker," and put him on a secret most-wanted list of enemies. He explains why he willingly returns to a country whose dictatorial government wishes only to silence or do away with him
