QUICK TAKES

Clinton Chinese edition is fought

September 25, 2003|From Reuters

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's publisher on Wednesday demanded the recall of the Chinese-language printing of her autobiography, calling it an inaccurate version that omits several passages critical of the country's human rights record.

In a tersely worded statement, Simon & Schuster said the Chinese edition of "Living History" includes unauthorized changes and demanded government-owned publisher Yilin Press remedy the issue by publishing an unaltered version.

Yilin did not immediately reply to the request.

At issue are 10 pages in the book where the Chinese publisher deleted passages detailing Clinton's views on China and her travels there. Simon & Schuster called the omissions a breach of contract and made the offending passages available on its Web site in both English and Mandarin.
