Dragon Fighter: One Woman’s Epic Struggle for Peace with China
Rebiya Kadeer’s memoir, Dragon Fighter, exposes the bravery of one woman determined to find justice for her people. Sharing a struggle similar to Tibet’s fight for autonomy, the Uyghur Nation has suffered from 60 years of Chinese occupation, including harassment, forced abortions, and even massacre.
Part historical analysis, part personal saga, Kadeer’s memoir gives us a glimpse into the life of the nation’s most revered political dissident. At times a small ant crawling along this landscape and at other times a bird soaring over it, Kadeer has never doubted her conviction that she was born to be a voice for liberation. Having risen from poverty to create a multimillion dollar business enterprise, Kadeer remains committed to freeing her region from their brutal realities, even at the cost of arrest and exile.
