Put Your Butcher's Sword Down!


The courageous journalist Tan Hecheng on the party's need to renounce violence.

This Q&A is part of my series of discussions with Chinese thinkers on problems facing the country. I wrote a longer article about Mr. Tan's book in the NYRB magazine, viewable here, and in this Q&A talk to him more generally about China's development.
