內容簡介

「中國儼然是座巨型監獄,而我家成為其中心點。」
想了解中國人權,除了劉曉波與艾未未,不能不提──陳光誠!

他是弱勢族群的正義使者,更是撼動國際視聽的人權鬥士。
他讓歐巴馬外交政策蒙塵,馬英九避而不見,更讓中共視為眼中釘!
《時代雜誌》年度百大風雲人物∣陳光誠自傳唯一中文版
繼英語版引發全球熱議,日、法、義、西語版即將上市!

◎他為一胎化政策下被迫墮胎、遭受侮辱的婦女維權,卻為何身陷囹圄?
◎他被拘禁在家多年,幾乎虛弱致死,如何逃出七十名看守層層守衛的東師古村?
◎在地方惡霸勾結公安的追殺中,他如何安全躲進北京的美國大使館,從而引發中美外交的衝突與妥協?
◎他一心想留在中國維護人權,是什麼原因讓他最後前往美國,流亡至今?

「我的心臟急促地跳動著。此刻,哪怕是折斷根小樹枝,都會透露我的蹤跡;我鬆開手翻身跳下去,右腳立刻爆出鑽心的巨痛──如果我的逃亡先前看起來似乎是冒著極大的風險,那麼現在就是絕對的瘋狂……」

盲眼,被關押和軟禁長達六年,他的身體已極度虛弱;再不逃亡,結局是被關死或病死,都不得而知。可是,被探照燈與七十名看守層層圍起的東師古村,嚴實地連一隻鳥兒都插翅難飛,即便「蝙蝠俠」都無法靠近,陳光誠又是如何奇蹟般地逃離?

陳光誠逃亡的細節、路徑和真相,中文版首度公開!二十幾個小時的逃亡,是智慧、勇氣、信念和機遇交疊而成的傳奇;這頁傳奇直至他藏身美國大使館仍未塵埃落定,宛如中國農村盲人版的《刺激一九九五》,讀後令人不可置信,又感慨萬千。

陳光誠出生於一九七○年代的文革後期,在二○一二年流亡美國。這四十年的中國,經濟成長為全球最大經濟體,政府唱和盛世繁榮、偉大復興和中國夢。然而陳的生命故事,卻是另一個中國的縮影,折射出同一個中國的異次元空間――它充滿暴戾之氣、暗黑無情、漠視人權、政府黑道化、靠無情打壓維權人士製造穩定和諧的假象。

本書是陳光誠的第一本傳記,講述了他如何從一個普通的農村盲人,因充滿正義感和勇氣而成長為一名赤腳律師、維權鬥士,在黑暗中國尋找光明,以微小肉身對抗龐大共產體制的故事。

這個故事的高潮,起始於因不堪荒謬的體制力量所壓抑,竟然演變成一幕離奇的逃亡大戲,最終以陳光誠被迫流亡海外而告一段落。我們該如何看待陳的維權經歷與遭遇?或許正如同美國國家圖書獎得主、《野心時代》作者歐逸文(Evan Osnos)所說:「陳光誠所代表的,正是普世人類意志最好的證明。」

It was like a scene out of a thriller: one morning in April 2012, China's most famous political activist-a blind, self-taught lawyer-climbed over the wall of his heavily guarded home and escaped. For days, his whereabouts remained unknown; after he turned up at the American embassy in Beijing, a furious round of high-level negotiations finally led to his release and a new life in the United States. Chen Guangcheng is a unique figure on the world stage, but his story is even more remarkable than we knew. The son of a poor farmer in rural China, blinded by illness when he was an infant, Chen was fortunate to survive a difficult childhood. But despite his disability, he was determined to educate himself and fight for the rights of his country's poor, especially a legion of women who had endured forced sterilizations under the hated 'one child' policy. Repeatedly harassed, beaten, and imprisoned by Chinese authorities, Chen was ultimately placed under house arrest. After a year of fruitless protest and increasing danger, he evaded his captors and fled to freedom. Both a riveting memoir and a revealing portrait of modern China, this passionate book tells the story of a man who has never accepted limits and always believed in the power of the human spirit to overcome any obstacle.
