Publishers Weekly, abbreviated PW, is an American weekly trade news magazine targeted at publishers, librarians, booksellers and literary agents. Published continuously for the past 138 years, it has carried the tagline, “The International News Magazine of Book Publishing and Bookselling.” With 51 issues a year, the emphasis today is on book reviews.

First published in 1872, the magazine began as The Publishers’ Weekly (with an apostrophe), a collective catalog for publishers to pool their resources. That listing of books enabled booksellers to learn about forthcoming titles, and eventually the publication expanded to include features and articles.

They’ve written a glowing review of my latest book, "My Two Chinas.”

About "My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary.”
with Baiqiao Tang

"My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary.”
recounts my co-author Tang Baiqiao’s experiences as a student leader during the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989; how he was subsequently hunted by the Chinese government and jailed for his pro-democracy activities; the physical and mental tortures he endured while in prison; his release, and eventual flight to the U.S.

Despite living in exile these past 21 years, Tang Baiqiao has never relented in his campaign to bring human rights and freedom to his homeland, and throughout the world.

"My Two Chinas"
features a foreword by His Holiness, Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama.

Prof. Robert Thurman, noted expert on China and Tibet, will contribute an introduction.

Jeff Widener, the world-renowned photojournalist and Pulitzer-finalist who took the iconic “Tank Man” photo has contributed a preface.

Hachette Book Group recenly approached me to read and comment on its forthcoming book by bestselling author Stehen Leeb with Greg Dorsey.

“Red Alert: How China’s Growing Prosperity Threatens the American Way of Life” is a compelling read, and I urge you to order it at once if you have any interest in China or global politics. You won’t find a more cogent breakdown of the issues facing the current and forthcoming synchronization of East and West. Or, as I say in my review blurb:

“You don’t need a crystal ball to see the future, you need this book. RED ALERT lives up to its title. Those who read it and heed the call will know how to prosper in the not-so distant future.”

Damon DiMarco, author of Tower Stories: An Oral History of 9/11 and co-author of My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary with Baiqiao Tang.
