Abstract

As the provocative title of the book indicates, this book is about the state of exception in contemporary China. More specifically, it is about the suspension of personal freedom and the multifold ways in which arbitrary detention is practiced. In this meticulously documented and carefully researched book, Dr. Flora Sapio presents to readers the various zones of legal exception in which personal freedom is deprived of and without formal accusation and due process.

Keywords: China, criminal law
