Praise

“Ian Buruma is a powerful storyteller. . . . Bad Elements is the best book yet written on Chinese dissidents.” —The New York Review of Books

“[Buruma is] one of the sharpest minds writing about Asia. . . . A brilliant examination . . . impressively comprehensive.” —The Wall Street Journal

“[Buruma’s] sharply observed and well-drawn portraits of obstinate, courageous and sometimes flawed people inspire admiration and compassion….A vivid history of repression and resistance.” —The New York Times Book Review

“An intellectual travelogue that gradually circles Beijing before ending up there…Buruma has a good eye for the small ironies of exile.” —The Washington Post Book World
