As an eyewitness to one of the bravest uprisings in living memory, Marxist author Ben Hillier reports from the ground on the highs and lows of the struggle in Hong Kong.
"A vivid account of the great Hong Kong revolt, which unearths the contradictions and complexities of its many actors. Hillier's on-the-ground reporting challenges the negative image of Hong Kong protesters popular among a section of the Western left."
—Au Loong Yu, author of Hong Kong in revolt: the protest movement and the future of China
"A series of extraordinary dispatcheso offeringan intimate portrait of a twenty first century insurgency, a movement that's violent and tender. confused and yet incredibly inspiring. In prose so urgent that you can smell tear gas on each page, Hillier eschews the voyeurism of the revolutionary tourist to investigate instead what the art of rebellion might mean both for Hong Kong and for radicals all over the world."
—Jeff Sparrow, author of Fascists Among Us: Online Hate and the Christchurch Massacre
