By highlighting eight investigative stories that are of modern-classic status in China, this book offers a tribute to the Chinese men and women who have kept their faith in the art of truth-telling and investigative reporting intact in spite of great personal sacrifices and hardships. They have pushed their luck, on paths fraught with setbacks and disappointments. This book is about them, their hopes and desires in the ever-evolving, brave new world of Chinese journalism. In telling their stories, this book also explores the limitations and fragile state of Chinese journalism today.
