Summary "Ilham Tohti is an intellectual and economist, a prolific writer, and formerly the host of a website, Uyghur Online. In 2014, Tohti was arrested by the Chinese authorities, accused of advocating separatism, violence, and the overthrow of the Chinese government, subjected to a two-day trial, and sentenced to life. Nothing has been heard from him since. This collection of his essays gathers together his open-hearted calls for justice, scholarly explanations of the history of Xinjiang, and poignant personal reflections"-- Provided by publisher.
