CHINA HOLDS REBELS IN SOVIET-STYLE

CHINA HOLDS REBELS IN SOVIET-STYLE ASYLUMS, this London Times Online article says, adding:

Beijing’s use of psychiatric detention is now on a par with the treatment of dissidents in the mental asylums of the Soviet Union, according to a new study.

None of this is very surprising to anyone who’s followed China with even a cursory interest, but it’s nice to see light being shown upon it.
