November 15, 1992 | ORVILLE SCHELL, Orville Schell is one of America's foremost China watchers. His last piece for this magazine was a profile of dissident Fang Lizhi; he is working on a book about events in China since the spring of 1989, to be published by Simon & Schuster. He lives in Northern California.
In the crowded streets of downtown Nanjing, it looked as if the entire city were flooding toward the concert at the 30,000-seat Wutaishan Sports Arena. Along the way, clumps of police stood watching the seemingly endless procession of young Chinese flow by. Outside the stadium gates, crowds of teen-agers negotiated anxiously with scalpers for tickets that cost as much as $25 U.S., five times their original price and more than half the monthly income of the average Chinese worker.
