520    "A powerful memoir by Nury Turkel lays bare China's 
       repression of the Uyghur people. Turkel is cofounder and 
       board chair of the Uyghur Human Rights Project and a 
       commissioner for the United States Commission on 
       International Religious Freedom. In recent years, the 
       People's Republic of China has rounded up as many as three
       million Uyghurs, placing them in what it calls 
       "reeducation camps," facilities most of the world 
       identifies as concentration camps. There, the genocide and
       enslavement of the Uyghur people are ongoing. The tactics 
       employed are reminiscent of the Cultural Revolution, but 
       the results are far more insidious because of the 
       technology used, most of it stolen from Silicon Valley. In
       the words of Turkel, "Communist China has created an open 
       prison-like environment through the most intrusive 
       surveillance state that the world has ever known while 
       committing genocide and enslaving the Uyghurs on the 
       world's watch." As a human rights attorney and Uyghur 
       activist who now serves on the US Commission on 
       International Religious Freedom, Turkel tells his personal
       story to help explain the urgency and scope of the Uyghur 
       crisis. Born in 1970 in a reeducation camp, he was lucky 
       enough to survive and eventually make his way to the US, 
       where he became the first Uyghur to receive an American 
       law degree. Since then, he has worked as a prominent 
       lawyer, activist, and spokesperson for his people and 
       advocated strong policy responses from the liberal 
       democracies to address atrocity crimes against his people.
       The Uyghur crisis is turning into the greatest human 
       rights crisis of the twenty-first century, a systematic 
       cleansing of an entire race of people in the millions. 
       Part Anne Frank and Hannah Arendt, No Escape shares 
       Turkel's personal story while drawing back the curtain on 
       the historically unprecedented and increasing threat from 
       China."--Publisher's website.
