Hillary Clinton’s latest memoir Hard Choices will not be coming to a Chinese bookstore near you. The book, which chronicles Clinton’s time as U.S. secretary of state is widely critical of China, its administration and its issues with human rights.
Clinton dedicates a full chapter to her efforts on behalf of Chen Guangcheng, the blind Chinese dissident and civil rights activist who sought asylum in the U.S. Another chapter focuses on democratization in Myanmar, where China has political and economic interests, and on Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s opposition leader.
Clinton also revisits her 1995 address to the United Nations Conference on Women in Beijing, where, she writes, she “felt the heavy hand of Chinese censorship when the government blocked the broadcast of my speech.”
Despite China’s history of letting in politically-charged books and simply altering the content to their liking (including former president Bill Clinton’s 2004 memoir, My Life), there won’t be any copies sold of Hard Choices to nearly one fifth of the world’s population.
