About the Author

Philip J Cunningham is a freelance writer and teacher of media studies.


For anyone interested in gaining an insight into how it felt to be there, for the entire four weeks of the protest up to the darkest night of the month, when the movement was crushed in a small-hours massacre, KJ contributor Philip J. Cunningham's Tiananmen Moon provides a uniquely informed inside view. . . .This 25th anniversary edition of Tiananmen Moon is itself a valuable historical document, containing a new prologue that reviews post-crackdown developments, and the subsequent lives of many of the activists involved. The spirit of Tiananmen is not confined to China, or the late 80s. It is present anywhere that citizens take a stand to challenge a corrupt political status quo, by whatever means come to hand, and whatever the result. * Kyoto Journal * [T]his book represents a different kind of coverage that richly complements the existing literature on the 1 989 Beijing Spring. While its major purpose has successfully been attained, this work which is grounded in practicalities has uniquely been organized as well. Lastly, as a book dedicated to those wonderful martyred souls who will never know the fruits of their great sacrifice, the memoir by Philip Cunningham has been told in an outspoken manner and conversational tone. From his study, we have understood about how two and a half decades later the Tiananmen massacre has become more relevant than ever before while the Chinese Communist rulers are trying to make this influential incident irrelevant. . . .[T]his highly informative and easy-to read volume will be of interest to those who want to know the thrilling stories of the Tiananmen Square upheaval and the June 4, 1 989 government military crackdown from a real person who directly experienced this archival event in the modern People's Republic of China. * International Journal of China Studies *
