Farewell gift for a Chinese girl / subversive literature
Hey folks! So, for the past three weeks I've been studying in a class with this cute Chinese exchange student. We've become really good friends, but she's leaving this weekend and I wanted to buy her a farewell present.
Now, she hates the Chinese (PRC) government. She also loves books. So! My idea was to get her a few books on being all anti-establishment and cool.
I bought her a copy of Thoreau's "Civil Disobedience" but I got it for only a buck so now I'm looking for other books to get her.
So I guess what I'm asking here is, imagine you met someone who is living under an oppressive authoritarian regime. And they hated it. What literature would you have them read? What do you think would help them most?
