程翔1973年畢業於香港大學經濟系,1974年加入香港《文匯報》工作,1981-88年出任該報駐北京辦事處主任,1988年升任副總編。1989年“六四事件”後離開﹔創辦《當代》週刊(後改月刊),專門報導分析中國事務。1996年出任新加坡《海峽時報》中國首席特派員並派駐台灣,2014年退休。在長達45年的記者生涯中,見証了中國改革開放政策的制定過程、以及香港澳門的回歸過程等,對兩岸三地的政治經濟有深入的了解。

 2005年程翔因撰寫文章質疑中共簽署中俄新邊界條約的合理性而被中共拘捕,並以間諜罪名治罪,判囚五年。後經過香港以及國際社會大力營救,終於在服刑三年後於2008年獲釋。 

程翔的其他著作包括《邊陲萬裡行》1985,《天安門的反思》1990,《Will Taiwan Break Away? The Rise of Taiwanese Nationalism》 2000, 《Handbook on China’s accession to WTO and its impact》2003, 《漫漫愛國路》2005,《千日無悔 – 我的心路歷程》等等。

Ching Cheong graduated with a degree in economics from the University of Hong Kong in 1973 and joined the pro-Beijing newspaper Wen Wei Po in Hong Kong in 1974 and became its deputy editor-in-chief in 1988. He quit the newspaper in 1989 in protest against the Tiananmen crackdown and founded a China-watch magazine, The Contemporary. In 1996 he became chief China correspondent for Singapore’s Straits Times.

In his 35-year long journalistic career, Ching specialized in political, military and diplomatic news in the Greater China area and had widespread postings experiences in Hong Kong, Beijing, and Taipei. In 2005, his critical analysis led to his imprisonment in China. During his incarceration, the local and international press community extended him great support, which led to his early release in 2008.

His other works include A Journey to the Far West of China (1985), Reflection on the Tian An Men crisis (1990), Will Taiwan break away? (2000), Handbook on China’s Accession to the WTO and its impact (2003), The Arduous Road of Patriotism (2005), and My 1000-day Ordeal (2009).

本書探討有關六七暴動的幾個概觀問題,解讀吳荻舟《六七筆記》。 

吳荻舟長期領導中共在香港的地下黨,掌握中共對香港的政策,他留下來的筆記,反映了當年中共在港的活動。吳荻舟筆記提供了暴動期間的內情和一手線索以及總理周恩來在暴動中的角色等。

The book is about the origin and end of the 1967 riots in Hong Kong. A trove of information has been unveiled for the first time, based on a chronicle kept by a senior official, Ng Tik-chou, who assisted then Premier Zhou Enlai in managing the riot, which was instigated by local communists.
