Returning to Revolution

“Returning to Revolution” on China’s Turning Point Attracts Eyeballs

   The 2015 Hong Kong Book Fair opened on Wednesday (July 15) at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. A book edited by rights defense lawyer Teng Biao and scholar of political transition Wang Tiancheng, book “Returning to Revolution: The Heated Debate On the Eve of Great Change in China,” was also brought to public attention by Greenfield Bookstoreon the same day. The book’s contents include contributions by dozens of scholars in China and abroad on the major transition ahead in China, and shows the authors’ independent reading on issues in China.

   
   The Book Fair, held by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, held its opening ceremony at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on Wednesday, by which time not a few residents had already begun lining up, beginning 1am that morning. Attendees were allowed in by organizers at 10am, and a number of them remarked that they’d come prepared to spend HKD$1,000 on books. At the Greenfield Bookstore stall, a new volume by Teng Biao, a human rights lawyer in exile in the United States, and Wang Tiancheng, a scholar of political transition, attracted a great deal of attention, particularly by young mainland readers. These young visitors hoped to understand Chinese society better through such “banned books.”
   
   The book collects together important articles on Chinese political transition written over the last decade, and especially in the last few years, by over 50 scholars and democracy activists inside and outside China. The contents attempt to outline and describe the new form of democratic revolution around the world, the new character of China’s own potential democratic transition, and discusses the renewed “return to revolution.” Topics discussed include the changes in discourse around revolution, the contention between reform and revolution, the dissident movement and the rights defense movement, the debate between gradualism and demands for rapid change, the conditions for China’s transition, and the methods and strategies by which it may be effected, and more.
   
   One of the editors of “Returning to Revolution,” Teng Biao, said in an interview with Radio Free Asia on Wednesday that it’s interesting to see many more people discussing the topic of revolution.
   
   “This title, ‘Returning to Revolution,’ is obviously a response to the views in ‘Goodbye to Revolution’ by Liu Zaifu and Li Zehou published in the mid-1990s. In the middle of the ‘90s there was also a lot of intense discussion about that volume. Here we primarily focus on the last few years, and on the debate between reform and revolution. The pieces we’ve collated express different views. Some propose a system of presenting ideas to the government, some call for revolution, some suggest reforms. We simply want to show an extremely interesting shift in the Chinese intellectual sphere, and also the political and social context and background behind this shift.”
   
   book “Returning to Revolution: The Heated Debate On the Eve of Great Change in China,” published by Origin Books, distributed by Greenfield Bookstore.

   -------------------
   What is revolution? Does revolution refer only to violence? Is revolution necessary? Can liberty and democracy be realized without revolution? If revolution is undesirable, is it avoidable? If revolution is in fact desirable, does China currently possess the conditions for it? What are the lessons from history, and from around the world? What is the relationship between opposition movements, rights defense movements, and revolution? This book attempts to address these questions from multiple perspectives and stances.
   — Teng Biao (human rights lawyer, Harvard University law school visiting scholar, editor of this volume
   
   Numerous signs indicate that China’s economy is currently in serious decline. Decades of rapid economic growth since the late 1970s and early 1980s have helped to prolong the life of the Chinese Communist Party — but now, it may not have another 30 years of the same good luck. Xi Jinping’s retrogressive policies means he is taking a major risk — he may be the last dictator of China. The hopes for reform under his rule have been quickly dashed. But they may not be a bad thing. Only when the people have lost all hope in Zhongnanhaiwill they be able to look back upon, discover, and liberate their own powers.
   — Wang Tiancheng (scholar of political transition, Tiananmen Democracy University provost, editor of this volume)
