The Gate of Heavenly Peace website, which explores the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests and related topics, has a new address: http://tsquare.tv.
This website contains extensive information about the 1989 protests, along with background material on recent Chinese history and human rights issues. The site has over 1200 pages in English and 800 pages in Chinese, as well as an "interactive" map of Tiananmen Square and a Media Library with posters, photographs, music and more than fifty video clips.
Readings available on the website include studies of the foreign and Chinese press coverage of 1989, a symposium on Chinese politics and culture, and essays and book excerpts by Jonathan Spence, Simon Leys, Geremie Barmé, Jonathan Unger, Anita Chan, Joseph Esherick, Andrew Walder, Richard Curt Kraus, Andrew Nathan, and Liu Xiaobo, among many others.
The site also includes information on the documentary, "The Gate of Heavenly Peace," a three-hour film about the 1989 protests. "The Gate of Heavenly Peace" was broadcast on PBS, BBC, and other television channels around the world, and it received a 1996 George Foster Peabody Award. Newsweek called the film "a deep, powerful and rivetingly complex study of Tiananmen." (October 9, 1995)
