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).
