A Teacher versus the Powerful Government
Chapter four examines the lawsuit submitted by Wang Peirong, an associate professor at the China Mining University, against the city government of Xuzhou, Jiangsu province. After Wang and thousands of other faculty and staff moved into their new university-built apartments in 1999, they found that the anti-theft doors of their apartments were defective and virtually useless. As a result, many tenants lost personal property to thieves. When infuriated homeowners elected Wang to complain to the local government, local officials simply ignored the complaint.
