Abstract and Bio

Claudia Pozzana, Allessandro Russo and David Zweig were students together in Beijing in 1974-76. They witnessed many of the same events and underwent similar experiences. Yet how they each saw those events depended on their own perspectives on China, society, and ideology. The three will present their own views of those days and how they affect their own understanding of reform China.
