An international expert on Chinese human rights issues, Dr. Link has edited this volume of Liu Xiaobo’s writings from the past two decades. Dr. Link also translated Charter 08, a manifesto for reforms which Liu Xiaobo initiated and which became one of the documents China's government used to prosecute Liu.
