The Tiananmen Hostage
Fang LizhiStreaming Video - 2006
In early 1989, U.S.-China relations were at an all-time high-until the tragic Tiananmen Square demonstration, fomented, some say, by astrophysicist Fang Lizhi and his wife, Professor Li Shuxian. This program provides a play-by-play account of the events surrounding the massacre and Fang and Li's escape from China, in the words of former emissaries Brent Scowcroft and Larry Eagleburger-an account confirmed by then-Vice Foreign Minister Zhu Qizhen. Additional interviews with James Baker and numerous others who were on the scene shed light on the dubious triumph of diplomacy over democracy.
