A Beautiful View from the Brink:
Linda Gail Arrigo and the Taiwan Democratic Movement

"The true story of an American caught up in the human rights struggle of a faraway Asian country may, I hope, pique the interest of other globe-trotting foreigners. Running through the narrative of this biography is the misery wreaked upon civilian populations by the short-sighted US foreign policy of supporting convenient dictators, an approach that should be recognized as a crime against humanity and resolutely resisted by all who have hope in the dignity of the human spirit. For ease of international sharing, I am providing here a synopsis of the book, chapter by chapter, in English. Who knows, you might even be inspired to learn Chinese to read it, and to embark on an odyssey into another language and culture just as I did."
