China Review International: Vol. 2, No. 1, Spring 2005 Philip F. Williams and Yenna Wu. The Great Wall of Confinement: The Chinese Prison Camp through Contemporary Fiction and Reportage. Berkeley, Los Angeles, and London: University of California Press, 2004. xi, 248 pp. Paperback 2.95, isbn 520227794. The isolated imprisonment of political dissidents envisaged by Aldous Huxley in his dystopian fantasy Brave New World was, for all the terror it inspired, something of a genteel retreat for liberal intellectuals: [H]is punishment is really a reward. He's being sent to an island. That's to say, he's being sent to a place where he'll meet the most interesting set of people to be found anywhere in the world. All the people who, for one reason or another, have got too self-consciously individual to fit into community-life. All the people who aren't satisfied with orthodoxy, who've got independent ideas of their own. Every one, in a word, who's any one.1 © 2005 by University of Hawai`i Press This passage was written in 932, early in what Philip F. Williams and Yenna Wu refer to as the "century of concentration camps" (p. ), before Stalin, Hitler, and Mao applied their own particular genius
