At 24, Joshua Wong is already a grizzled veteran of protest culture: He began organizing against Chinese government propaganda as a teenager, and is now one of the primary leaders of the current Hong Kong protests for democracy. This book charts his improbable rise from Marvel-loving teen to revolutionary. It includes letters he wrote as a political prisoner, a succinct overview of Hong Kong’s current political turmoil and arguments for why that struggle is just the beginning of a larger fight against anti-democratic threats across the world. Meanwhile, Wong’s personal saga continues: He was arrested in September and may face more jail time, but has pledged to continue his resistance.
