Tank Man: How a Photograph Defined China’s Protest Movement

Out of stock
On June 5, 1989, in Beijing, China, days after a deadly clash between political protestors and Communist soldiers in Tiananmen Square, army tanks rolled down the city’s main avenues in a show of government force. Suddenly, a man bravely stepped in front of the tanks, halting their progress. The moment was captured by Associated Press photographer Jeff Widener, and the image became an iconic symbol of protest. With clean design, informative text boxes that will enhance readers’ understanding, and dramatic photographs, here is the story of how that photo came to be—and the many ways it almost didn’t. Back matter includes a time line, glossary, suggested further reading, a link to publisher-approved Web sites, Common Core critical thinking questions, source notes, select bibliography, and an index.
