Liu’s place in history has never been so clearly revealed. Nathan, Class of 1919 Professor of Political Science, Columbia University. Can a professor of Chinese, by peacefully promoting a rational statement of principles of government, shake the foundations of a state that enjoys growing power, boasts vaulting wealth, and rules more than a billion people? Many foreign observers believe not. They see the professor as a ‘dissident’ and his ideas as a tiny sideshow.

Jean-Philippe Béja, Fu Hualing and Eva Pils. On the sixtieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Charter 08, a manifesto asking for the transformation of the People’s Republic into a Federal Republic based on separation of powers, a multi-party system, and the rule of law, was sent to the Chairman of the People’s Republic of China (PRC). If, fantastically, an opinion poll on Do you support Charter 08? could be conducted in China today, its results would have to be read bearing in mind that you cannot look up Charter 08 on the domestic Internet, and that any expression of support for it may result in state persecution.

Jean-Philippe Beja, Hualing Fu, Eva Pils. In December 2008 some 350 Chinese intellectuals published a manifesto calling for reform of the Chinese constitution and an end to one-party rule. Known as "charter 08," the manifesto has since been signed by more than 10,000 people. One of its authors, Liu Xiaobo, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010 but has remained in prison since 2009 for subversive crimes.

Michaela Kotyzova explains why, despite the kinship between Liu’s Charter 08 and Charter 77, the manifesto written by Václav Havel when he was a young Czech dissident, one cannot expect China to follow the Czech path to freedom.

In December 2008 some 350 Chinese intellectuals published a manifesto calling for reform of the Chinese constitution and an end to one-party rule. Known as "Charter 08", the manifesto has since been signed by more than 10,000 people. One of its authors, Liu Xiaobo, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010 but has remained in prison since 2009 for subversive crimes. This collection – the first of its kind in English – examines the trial of Liu Xiaobo, the significance and impact of Charter 08, and the prospects for reform in China. The collection includes contributions from legal and political experts from around the world, a detailed account of Liu's trial by his defence lawyers, and a passionate – and ultimately optimistic – account of resistance, repression and political change by the human rights lawyer Teng Biao.
