The barefoot lawyer : a blind man's fight for justice and freedom in China by Guangcheng Chen( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was like a scene out of a thriller: one morning in April 2012, China's most famous political activist--a blind, self-taught lawyer--climbed over the wall of his heavily guarded home and escaped. Days later, he turned up at the American embassy in Beijing, and only a furious round of high-level negotiations made it possible for him to leave China and begin a new life in the United States. Chen Guangcheng is a unique figure on the world stage, but his story is even more remarkable than anyone knew. The son of a poor farmer in rural China, blinded by illness when he was an infant, Chen was fortunate to survive a difficult childhood. But despite his disability, he was determined to educate himself and fight for the rights of his country's poor, especially a legion of women who had endured forced sterilizations and abortions under the hated "one child" policy. Repeatedly harassed, beaten, and imprisoned by Chinese authorities, Chen was ultimately placed under house arrest. After nearly two years of increasing danger, he evaded his captors and fled to freedom. Both a riveting memoir and a revealing portrait of modern China, The Barefoot Lawyer tells the story of a man who has never accepted limits and always believed in the power of the human spirit to overcome any obstacle

El abogado descalzo : la lucha de un activista ciego por la justicia y la libertad en China by Guangcheng Chen( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Una mañana de abril de 2012, Chen Guangcheng emprendió la huida. Llevaba cuatro años de prisión y dos de arresto domiciliario por actuar como «abogado descalzo» —letrado sin título— defendiendo los derechos de los más desfavorecidos. Tardó casi un día entero en salir de su aldea: ciego desde la infancia, Chen había tenido que memorizar el recorrido de su fuga, a través de muros y patios del vecindario, para no tropezar con los guardias que rodeaban su casa, que en realidad ocupaban todo el pueblo para vigilarle. Días después, y tras una persecución en coche, consiguió llegar a la embajada estadounidense en Pekín. Aunque allí empezaría otra batalla que iba a pelearse al más alto nivel. Esta es la historia de un hombre que se rebeló contra el destino que le esperaba como invidente en la China rural de los ochenta, a quien nadie enseñó a leer y escribir hasta los dieciocho años, que llegó a la universidad a costa de no comer para pagar la matrícula y que desde el principio tuvo claro que debería luchar para ganarse sus derechos más básicos como ciudadano. Es la historia de un activista inusual que nunca aceptó que le pusieran límites y siempre creyó en la capacidad del espíritu humano de superar cualquier obstáculo
